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 (Completed). Finalize Design (Completed), Develop Construction Documents (In progress as of May 6, 2019). Construction (as soon as 2020).

Funding: TBD
