Area Status: Open
From a lush temperate forest valley, the trail climbs 2,200 feet in three miles to Snider Ridge. It weaves four miles through Douglas-fir trees on the north side of the ridge and rocky points and high meadows to the south. The trail meanders along the ridge top between Jim’s Junction and Mosley gap. It offers spectacular views of Mt. Olympus, Lake Crescent, the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and the Sol Duc Valley below. The trail descends to the valley floor through boulder formations and overhanging moss. The loop trail returns to the trailhead through beautiful stands of maple, Douglas-fir and western hemlock.
This is a multi-use trail for mountian biking, horseback-riding and hiking. Carry adequate drinking water and be prepared for bad weather. The flower meadows are very fragile. Please stay on the trail. Tether stock in designated areas only or in the trees below the meadows. Practice Leave No Trace techniques during your trip.
