“A 1.5-mile trail leads you up to fantastic ridge views of Blodgett Canyon.”— Donovan Fitzgerald
The trail takes a slow rise up to the ridge with a few switchbacks along the way. Along the way, you'll encounter a few benches that are installed at the best viewpoints. A few years back, this area was the scene of an intense wildfire and the remains of that burn are still evident.
There is a good chance that you may encounter some wildlife, so be prepared. I was challenged by a bull moose on my trip and was very fortunate to have removed myself from the situation. Once you reach the ridge, you'll be rewarded with fantastic views of Blodgett Canyon. Enjoy!
