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.
