Dishman Hills Phillips Creek Trailhead

In 2018, Spokane County acquired the 179-acre former "Flying L Ranch" through the Conservation Futures Program, opening up the opportunity to develop a new public access point to the Glenrose Unit of Dishman Hills Conservation Area. With the recent success of the Glenrose Trailhead planning process and subsequent construction of that new access point, Spokane County is working towards replicating that process here.

Timeline: Conceptual Design and Public Meetings, 100%, Finalize Design - 100%, Develop Construction Documents -100%, Permitting - 95% Construction - 5%. 

Funding: Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) - 92%, Conservation Futures M&O  - 8%.

Project Update: The Phillips Creek Trailhead will be open to the public starting Friday, September 4th. The webcam will "go-live" that morning and can be found here. The contractor (Red Diamond Construction) will return in late October to complete hyrdoseeding and landscape installation. The Flying L Trail, constructed by volunteers from Spokane Mountaineers, Washington Trails Association, Evergreen East and Dishman Hills Conservancy, has been completed to create a 2.2-mile trail that connects to the Glenrose Trail. Trail signage is scheduled to be installed on September 8th.
