Part of the Church Camp trail system.

The Ridge Hike Trail is an out-and-back trail option in the Church Camp trails area. Ridge Hike Trail is accessed from the main parking area at Church Camp/Falls Creek (marked by a large boulder).

Continue along the meadow and main Church Camp trail from the parking area, and up a rockier hill at an intersection near the end of the meadow. From the top of this hill, turn south and head towards the top of the facing ridge for 1.3 miles to the end of Ridge Trail, then turn around to head back the way you came.

This trail is fairly technical for bikes and often used as a hiking trail. This is a popular area for hikers, bikers and runners to adventure with dogs.
