Trail Description Driving Directions

alert Trail Alert, Jul 12, 2018: This trailhead is no longer accessible. The alternate route to Heartbreak Ridge is by using the Bonneville Trailhead. Please note this nearly doubles the mileage. Learn more.

This hike requires a guide due to the labyrinth of trail systems and confusing routes leading to the Pacific Crest Trail. Once you reach the PCT, turn left, heading up hill to the Heartbreak Ridge cut-off, owned and managed by the Department of Natural Resources. This hike has incredible views and expert level terrain. For a similar hike try Table Mountain (from Bonneville Trailhead). + Read More
