This trail starts on a NF service road, and climbs to the top of Browder Ridge. The climb is steep and pretty brutal, but the trail is worth it coming down. It was recently revived, but it still has some over growth issues due to lack of use. The decent is what you would expect from a PNW trail, with lots of roots, rocks and wetness.

Access Info

From Highway 20, turn onto NF 2672. Travel 1.7 Miles then turn right onto NF 1598. Travel 2.8 miles and the trail head is just past the creek on the right.

      Plants in the fields are getting pretty tall and scary to go through fast.
