Description

Langille Ridge is a trail that includes exposure along cliffs, narrow singletrack and loose rock.

Langille Ridge can be done as an out-and-back to Boundary Trail #1 or combined with other roads and trails in the area.

Out-and-Back Option:

Start at the north end and hike up a tough climb through dense stands of forest. Around the two-mile mark, the route opens up and gains the ridgeline as the the trail skirts Langille Peak.

The route continues on the ridge and then drops a bit on the east side, passing a spring and small pond before the intersection with the McCoy Peak Trail #259A. Continue straight here and drop into a forest mixed with noble fir and hemlock.

Stay right at the intersection with Rough Trail #283 to continue on Langille Ridge to the intersection with Boundary Trail #1. Return via the same route.

Loop/Shuttle Option:

Start on FR 2900 at the bottom of Rough Trail #283 and hike south up to Boundary Trail #1. Turn right and endure a steep climb to Langille Ridge. Turn right again and head north. Climb gradually through forest before the grade steepens for one last big climb.

A nice descent follows, taking you to the intersection with Rough Trail #283. Stay right here to enjoy a final exciting downhill to FR 2900.
