“Great singletrack meandering through the forest.”— Brennan Morrow
Family Friendly A fun trail for one and all.
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.
