    Route Description for Yarrow Ridge

    Starting up Yarrow Ridge might be the most difficult part of the route. From the parking, find your way to a cutline between two private properties and hike towards the slopes below Yarrow Ridge. You will be able to spot some obvious trails to follow up the ridge. Hike the ridge in a counter clockwise direction, beginning by taking the trail to the right and gaining elevation. There are some technical sections that might require a bit of scrambling, but nothing too difficult.

    Once you gain the ridge, the trail flattens out and leads to various high points before circling around to create the loop. Be sure to use our GPS and have a good idea of the route to ensure you descend on the right path.
