Route Description for Snyder Ridge Trail
Snyder Ridge Trail is a low traffic hike through dense forest with ups and downs along the ridge. The views are seldom until you reach the last few miles of the trail. Do note that this is also a one-way trail, so make sure you have another car waiting for you at the end.
Beginning at southern shores of Lake McDonald, follow the trail along the lake through the forest until you reach small creeks flowing through the trail. This will signal that you are almost near the end. You will then come upon the beauty of Fish Lake and once you have enjoyed your time there, continue out of the trail as this is a one-way trail.
