Runner Notes

This trail is only a year old and remains somewhat of a secret, partially because it is not yet signed (May 2018).

Description

Ricketty starts at the low end just south of the intersection of FS Road 2060 and Horn Gap Road and begins a gentle ascent on a relatively open ridge. It then joins the remnants of an old logging road where it begins an increasingly steep climb into a denser forest area with a mix of madrone, pines, firs, and cedars.

Ricketty emerges at FS Road 2060 near the intersection with FS Road 2060-400, which leads to the No Candies trail. Runners will appreciate the shorter route to FS Road 400 as Ricketty shaves off over a mile.

Flora & Fauna

This is one of many trails on the west side where you stand a good chance of seeing a mother bear and cubs. A particularly large cedar can be seen about three-quarters of the way up the trail.
