The series of Ridge Trails had a lot of up and down, so just following a ridge does not mean a relitively flat tread, but the pay offs are the many rock overlooks we encountered. Our total hike was 9.5 miles with a total gain of 3,400 feet.
When we neared the end of the Hemlock Trail we were a bit confused by the junctions of trails and lack of signage but another hiker not only helped out but suggested a short trail to the Chuckanut Falls which turned out to be an unexpected bonus.
