Great singletrack meandering through the forest.

Family Friendly A fun trail for one and all.

Description

The East Branch of the PRT represents a more meandering feel of the Peterson Ridge Trail System as it consistently climbs. There are rock outcroppings and scenic viewpoints along this section.

The trail leaves straight from town and is a net ascent as it trends south and then west. There are many "ladder rung" trails that connect this trail to its western half, the PRT West. Each cutoff is a potential bailout or loop creator. If you want to hike the Peterson Ridge Trail in its entirety, check out the Peterson Ridge Trail Outer Loop for more details.

Check out this map for a complete overview of the trail system.
