Bethel Ridge Road climbs over a 5,000-foot-elevation volcanic ridge east of William O. Douglas Wilderness, passing through a mixed forest. The views of the valleys, ridges and peaks east of the Cascades are outstanding, as is the sight of the narrow, rock-walled canyon of Rattlesnake Creek, where anglers can cast for cutthroat and rainbow trout. The route is mostly gravel, with some asphalt.
