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. The Phillips Creek Trailhead is now completed and open to the public. This new trailhead located at 4102 S. Sunderland Dr. at the edge of the City of Spokane Valley, serves as the "jumping off" point for the new 2.25-mile "Flying L Trail" that connects in with the "Glenrose Trail" that starts on the west side of the unit.
This new trailhead is located at 4102 S. Sunderland Drive, Spokane Valley, WA.
