The Ridge Trail (white blazes) runs from Pleasant Valley Road at the eastern end of Baldpate about two miles to an open meadow near the western end (picnic tables there), and then about .2 mile further, curving down to the driveway below the former Kuser Estate house, now renovated as a visitor center. This wide trail follows an old wood road, which has in most places narrowed to a footpath, and has the gentlest grades of all the trails, with moderate ups and downs. There are wonderful views from the open meadow of the Delaware River to the south, and of the Philadelphia skyline when the air is clear. At about midpoint along the Ridge Trail, the route passes a complex of old farm buildings with a pond nestled below the house. This is a charming spot for a rest, a snack, and listening to the breeze in the trees.

      Good riding today, wet down in low but surprisingly good dirt for most of the mountain.

      Very dry conditions, even where it's always wet. Watch out for ticks. Overgrowth on many of the non-road trails to the point of bushwhacking....

      Some downed trees and lots of wet leaves - but manageable.
