      Iller is an small network of trails minutes from Spokane that will feel like you are miles from town. Access can be made via the Stevens Creek (West) or Holman (East) Trailheads.

      Most popular loop is to climb the Iller East Ridge to the Rocks of Sharon Viewpoint then descend via Iller Creek West Fork back to the Holman parking area. West Fork trail is very fast and fun. Bring a bell to alert Hikers of Descending biking traffic. Many hikers traffic the West Fork Trail. This loop ~1,250 feet of climbing.

      Another option is to ride up the East Ridge and take the Upper Valley trail to the West Fork trail to avoid the steep climb at the end of the East Ridge Trail.

      West fork trail is forested and follows a drainage and holds up very well throughout the summer as conditions get dry elsewhere.

      Tower Mountain loop is less trafficked.
