Dishman Hills Glenrose Trailhead

Please note: The Glenrose access point is closed to the public while construction continues on the new trailhead. Please utilize other access points at Stevens Creek and Iller Creek. Thank you.

The Glenrose Unit of Dishman Hills Conservation Area is a 607-acre open space area owned and managed by Spokane County Parks, Recreation & Golf. The property is bordered on the east by the Ponderosa Neighborhood (City of Spokane Valley) and on the west by the Glenrose Neighborhood (just outside of the City of Spokane). The property currently has no off-street parking, with most visitors parking at the north end of  South Theirman Road.  The trail system consists of primitive former access roads with some single track, including the Cliffs Trail built by Dishman Hills Conservancy with volunteers for several different organizations.

The goal of this project is to work with the community to design and develop a new trailhead parking area to accommodate visitors safely and effectively.
