This extension to the Frisby Ridge trail follows the ridge line to finish with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. A fast flowy ride with great views along the way. This is an out and back trail with no water so make sure before you start out that you have enough water, and energy, to ride back to the Frisby Ridge Trailhead as well.

Disclaimer

This trail is under an enforced caribou closure every year until July 15. Users will incur fines if they enter the closure area.
