This day hike along High Ridge leads from Middle Cougar Ridge Trailhead to a jeep road and campsite on High Ridge. High Ridge Trail heads north-northwest from the junction with Cougar Ridge Trail. One-third mile from the junction is a spring (5,440 ft.). The trail is not always easy to see past the spring. Watch for blazes on the trees. The trail goes through alternating open and wooded areas along the ridge. There is quite a bit of both blue and yellow lupine blooming in June and July along High Ridge.
