Hike to Mist Ridge South Summit

Mist Ridge

Description:
  A strenuous hike to a magnificent view.  The trail is an old road track, so footing will be easy except at the very summit.

 

One of the finest ridge walks in K Country was first brought to everyone’s attention by Alf Skrastins in the Foothills Wilderness Journal.  While easy, it’s a long haul on grass and hiking the ridge in its entirety to Rickert’s Pass and returning down Mist Creek Trail makes for a very long day indeed.  Luckily if time is short just do the south summit circuit or wonder about the South Mist Hills.
