Trail shared by Tom Robson

A mellow river walk turned steep ridge ascent, eventually gaining the famed Emerald Ridge.

Description

From Westside Road and Round Pass, South Puyallup trail climbs gradually through old growth forest to the South Puyallup Camp. From the camp, the trail becomes very rocky and climbs more steeply.

Once atop Emerald Ridge, please stay on the constructed trails and rock outcroppings. The delicate subalpine vegetation is damaged by off-trail hiking and other uses.
