“A beautiful ridge top trail with views and wildflowers abound.”— Brian Smith
Views of the White River Valley, Rainier and lush green surroundings abound. Eventually, the Sourdough Ridge Connector will spur off to the left (south) followed shortly thereafter by another Sourdough Ridge Connector. Both trails lead to the Sunrise parking, camping and visitor areas.
At mile 3.3, the Huckleberry Creek Trail will branch off to the right (north) and descend steeply from the ridge. The final stretch of Sourdough Ridge Trail descends and contours to Frozen Lake. From here, you have many options: take the Wonderland Trail back to Sunrise, follow Mount Fremont Trail to the fire tower, or wander up to the Burroughs Mountain Trail via the North Burroughs Mountain Trail.
