    VIGOROUS 5.5 MILE HIKE - ILLER CREEK

    Mary Weathers will lead this long, steep hike on rugged trails up the 5.5-mile loop from the Iller Creek Trail Head to the Rocks of Sharon with big views over the Palouse and yellow canola fields. The elevation gain is 1200'. Giant rock outcroppings of 1.7 Billion year-old gneiss sprout from the ridge line.


    This difficult hike will start at 8:30 am. We plan on being back to the cars about 12 noon. Bring some foodwater, and a jacket in case of chilly winds. The weather looks good for this hike but the forecast could be wrong.

    We will meet at the Iller Creek Trailhead at 9100 E Holman Road.

    Directions to Trailhead: From I-90, take the Argonne Road exit 287. Drive south on Argonne Road. Continue past Sprague Avenue onto Dishman-Mica Road, driving approximately 2.8 miles. Turn right at the Schafer Road stoplight and cross the railroad tracks. Continue until Schafer Road tees into 44th Ave and turn right on 44th. Go one block and turn left on Woodruff, continue on Woodruff to Holman and turn right and stay on Holman to the Trailhead sign. [Proceed slowly through the neighborhood.]

    For more information, call Mary Weathers at 509-448-6462 or Jeff Lambert at 509-999-5100.
