Ridge Trail

This is a rugged, strenuous trail. It is a connector between the Pinnacle Mountain and Table Rock Trails. If you ascend Pinnacle Mountain Trail to the orange-blazed stones at the apex, the Ridge Trail provides an alternate descent. Look for a leaf-covered, winding, dirt path and you will begin the quiet, less trodden Ridge Trail. As you walk along steep slopes through a mixed wood habitat, watch for bear, snakes, birds, and a variety of other wildlife. You will pass Mill Creek Pass Trail (another connector back to the Pinnacle Mountain Trail) about midway to the Table Rock Trail. At the Table Rock Trail you can follow the signs up the mountain, or turn right and descend to the Nature Center. Remember to wear sturdy footwear and functional clothing. Carry adequate water and first aid supplies, and insect repellent is recommended in warm weather. Pets are permitted on leashes. Restrooms and water are available in the wood building above the Nature Center parking area. This trail is 3.3 miles one way from the Nature Center.
