    Directions to Trailhead

    Shannon Ridge Trail is a fun, challenging hike that leads you through the forest to a viewpoint over Baker Lake and the surrounding Mountains. It’s a fun but tiring trek, with lots of roots to avoid and a solid climb required. You won’t need to share the trail with too many other people on this hike! Poles and good boots are recommended.

    Route Description for Shannon Ridge Trail

    Shannon Ridge is an impressive hike that rewards you with views of Baker Lake and the Cascades. This hike is a bit adventurous, with lots of rooty sections and mud. Wear solid boots and prepare for an intrepid trek. You’ll also need to climb some steep sections, so poles are a good idea if you have them.

    Note: There are two parking areas for this hike. The first one is free and the second one is paid. The second one is about two miles past the first at the end of the road.

    From the trailhead, hike roughly north into the forest. You’ll cross a creek as you traverse across a slope, following the contour of the hillside. The route is quite relaxed until the last third or so. This is where the climbing begins- you’ll switchback your way up the slope, gaining most of the elevation of the trail en route to the viewpoint. From the top, the trail continues on, but you’ll turn back and retrace your steps.

    Getting to the Shannon Ridge Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Shannon Ridge Trail is near the end of National Forest Development Road 1152.
