Bingham Ridge Trail #3421


The trail meanders up Bingham Ridge through stands of older Douglas-fir and noble fir. Bingham Ridge trail is a dry steep climb for the first couple of miles; it then eases up for the remainder of the distance to the Lake of the Woods Trail # 3493 junction. This trail offers views of the Cascade range. Portions of this trail were effected by the Puzzle Fire of 2006. Hazards from the fire may persist. Use caution.
