The Iller Creek Unit of Dishman Hills Conservation Area consists of 966.62 acres of County-owned, preserved open space. Together with Dishman Hills Conservancy-owned land property, over 1,159 acres of scenic, high quality habitat is available for passive recreation such as hiking and bird watching at this unit. While the DHCA currently consists of two separate areas in the Glenrose and Iller Creek areas, a long-term vision is emerging that could eventually connect the two areas and Dishman Hills Natural Area to create a large wilderness-like area within 5 miles of downtown Spokane.

The Iller Creek Unit is one of the more popular conservation areas acquired through the Conservation Futures Program. Consisting of 966 acres of trails and habitat on the east flanks of Tower Mountain, this property includes granite monoliths popular with rock climbers, seasonal creeks, and views of Spokane Valley and the Palouse.

The Iller Creek Conservation Area hosts 163 species of invertebrates, 120 species of birds (see the Birds of Iller Creek Checklist (PDF)), 15 mammals and 2 amphibians. Moose and black bear are frequently seen by visitors.
