    Route Description for Pedley Pass Trail

    While the road into the Pedley Pass Trail is fairly treacherous, the trail itself is not overly difficult. It offers hikers the chance to experience the rugged landscape of this backcountry area. The route sets out from the parking area and climbs steeply uphill through the forest to arrive at a junction in the trail. Heading right here will take you further into the mountains to a small lake, with Mount Aeneas dramatically towering overhead.

    After absorbing the natural beauty of this area, head back to the junction and follow it to the right to head up Pedley Ridge. From here, you will have a stunning sightline over the picturesque alpine landscape. For the moderate effort required, this hike offers some truly breathtaking views. After spending some time up on the ridge, head back down the steep trail to return to your vehicle and make the bumpy journey home.
