    Directions to Trailhead

    The Heybrook Ridge Trail is a heavily trafficked out-and-back trail in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest that is rated as moderate. This hike is short, and while a bit of steeper hiking is required near the end, it’s not an overly difficult hike. The main view is of Bridal Veil Falls and the surrounding mountains.

    Note that this is not the Heybrook Lookout hike, although we do offer a route guide for that trail as well.

    Route Description for Heybrook Ridge Trail

    The hike to Heybrook Ridge is fairly quick and moderate, with some more tiring elevation gain at the end of the hike. Hikers do report feeling ambivalent towards the beginning of the trail, as road noise and logging noise take a while to fade away on this hike. Remember that peace and quiet await at the top!

    Start by heading roughly south out of the parking area, keeping right at the junction onto Heybrook Ridge Trail. Cruise through the noisy sections as fast as you can before beginning to switchback up the ridge face. The trail steepens here.

    Keep going to the ridgetop, where you’ll have a perfect vantage point overlooking Bridal Veil Falls and the valley below.

    When you’re ready, make the jaunt back to the parking lot via the same trail you took on the way up.
