This trail offers excellent views of the North Fork of the Cispus and the Cispus Rivers. Side slopes are very steep along this trail with two miles being especially rocky and exposed.

The Bishop Ridge trail begins on the Valley Trail #270 at the Horse Creek Trailhead on Forest Road 23. The trail climbs steadily for 3.5 miles to a semi open ridge on the south side of Bishop Mountain, then descends to intersect with Blue Lake Ridge Trail #271. This trail was reconstructed in 1994.
