“A good climb to a long ridge-hike with big views.”— Bruce Hope
The trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, so please observe proper trail etiquette. A few trails are reserved for mountain biking (these are usually signed as such), so please don’t hike on these.
There are no potable water sources in the park or along the trails – be sure to bring plenty of your own.
Once there, the trail (which is now an old road) traverses the ridge to Blazer Junction and a junction with Sofie's Trail. If you continue straight from here on the old road (the preferred mountain biker route), you'll bypass the hiker's trail out to the views from the Jackson Ridge Shelter and a junction with the Claimjumper Trail.
Either way, you'll either stay on or re-connect with the ridge, pass a junction with the Legburner Trail and then the Atsahu Trail, before dropping back down through the woods to end at a junction with the Jackson Creek Nature Trail and the Jackson Creek Bike Trail (an old road).
