North Ridge Route Map
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The first mile or so follows the Gold Dust trail through mostly level terrain through a moist area of beaver ponds, crossing two creeks. The remaining mile and a half is off-trail and it is in this section that the vast majority of elevation is gained. About half of the off-trail portion is through timber, with the remaining on talus above timberline.
