High Point

No-name ridge is the least used trail in the area and may not be in as good of shape as Kachess Ridge trail. Start there where you have the most energy!

Ride the Kachess Ridge in its entirety by combining "No Name Ridge trail" with the full length of Kachess Ridge trail to make this a tough 13+ mile point to point ride that maximizes the return on investment.

This trail climbs high and is generally open around July. All snow covering the trail should be gone by August for sure. Maybe the best time to visit this is in the month of August for it's wildflower blooms and great weather and again later in fall before the snow falls.

This is a visually gorgeous route that climbs high and offers some great views to the North and South!

      Great ridgeline trail to be saved for a clear day. Take your time and enjoy it. Yes, it's not Tiger and you might have to push your bike. Zero blowdowns and brushed out. Nice trail surface with classic sub alpine needles and moist dirt. Really cool place that is lightly traveled.

      The top half is entirely covered with snow, to the point that you can't identify the trail. The lower half is pretty much entirely push-bike-step-fwd-repeat type of steep. Hikers can use the bottom half as an out and back, but nobody should be on the top half.
