The Taneum Ridge Trail begins at Forest Road 3300 and ends at Manastash Ridge Trail #1388.
From Taneum Junction, the trail follows Taneum Ridge and is steep in spots as it gains altitude quickly. At 2 miles, the trail crosses Forest Road 3300 and continues along the ridge to the next junction with 3300 at 4 miles, passing through some clearcuts on the way. Just past the road junction is the junction with the Fishhook Flat Trail 1378. From there the trail begins another steady uphill climb. At 5 miles, the trail levelsoff as it continues to follow the ridge up and down hill. The trail continues straight before switchbacking down the mountainside through scattered trees and meadows. It enters a large saddle in a big clearcut on private land. At 10 miles is the junction with South Fork Taneum Trail 1367. The trail then crosses a logging road and heads uphill. At 10.3 miles, the trail enters old-growth forest and switchbacks up the ridge. At 11.5 miles, the trail levels off on a ridgetop with scattered trees and meadows and soon terminates at its junction with Manastash Ridge Trail 1388.
SETTING: Forest, clearcuts, meadows, ridgetop, subalpine.
