View from Long Ridge Road

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Just before reaching the top, a wooden gate post will be seen. Long Ridge Road is just on the other side. The transition is remarkable. From an ascending trail in dense forest growth you step out onto a large dirt fire road with sweeping views to the West. Meadows predominate the ridge which are peppered with small groves of mature trees. The Bay Area Ridge trail continues south while our hike follows the road right to the North.
