Horseshoe Ridge Details
Narrow tread, steep side slopes, and rocky, rugged terrain make the 6.9 mile Horseshoe Ridge trail a challenging trail. Not recommended for bikes or stock. On a clear day, views of Huffman Peak, Siouxon Canyon, and the West Point burn are attractions along the trail as well as huckleberries and bear grass.
The first access point is 1 mile east from West Creek on Siouxon Trail #130. The trail climbs steeply south for 1.5 miles, through a dense second-growth forest, to Horseshoe Ridge. A fire lookout was once located on the northwestern end of the 3,495-foot summit. Continuing east on the ridge, the trail then intersects Road 5700.320. From Horseshoe Ridge the trail drops steeply into Siouxon Canyon, passing through huckleberries and bear grass. The trail rejoins Trail #130 approximately 3 miles past West Creek. On Horseshoe Ridge bear grass and huckleberries dominate the vegetation.
Not recommended for bikes or stock.
