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!

Perfect. Tacky dirt and dry roots. One new down tree on the bottom section

Fantastic views on this trail, can't think of many if any in the region that are better. Wildflowers a plenty. Problem I have with this trail is its really not a bike trail. You would be best to trail run or hike it and expend way less energy. I pushed my bike up lots of hills and there's a traverse section with a lot of exposure so I walked that also. However, the views are way better than Kanchess downhill proper and that's the draw for me on this trail.

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.
