A shorter alternative to the Berray Mountain Trail #967.

Features Birding · Fall Colors · Historical Significance · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife

The road to the trailhead is best accessed with high clearance. A GPS unit is helpful, but not necessary, to get to the trailhead via the network of dirt roads. The trailhead is not marked as of summer 2019.

Need to Know

Use care to avoid falling trees, as the trail mostly climbs through burned forest. Wildflowers can be shoulder-height during the summer - a real treat! There are no services at the trailhead. The trailhead is not marked, but since the road ends at the trailhead, it's not too difficult to locate. Be off the ridgeline if summer thundershowers threaten.

Description

Begin on the unmarked trail to the right of the end of the road. The trail climbs steeply through the burned forest - in midsummer, the wildflowers are prolific in this section.

Reach the top of the ridge after about 0.6 miles -- the trail undulates and continues to climb along the ridge. Views open up of the Berray Mountain Lookout on the next ridge.

Meet the Berray Mountain Trail #967 at about mile 1.7. Turn right to access the lookout about 0.4 miles from the junction.
