When I first suggested walking the ridge between Highway 940 and Plateau Mountain my friends looked at me in disbelief. From the highway it certainly looks to be boring forest and as if to emphasize the point, the topo map has it covered in a green wash. The reality is something quite different, a splendid ridge of grass and rock, not in the least dull, though the trees spill over the crest here and there. Just walking to the top and back is the least exciting option. I recommend an end to end ridge walk using two vehicles.
