Hike from the trailhead next to the Bumping River to the top of American Ridge. The route then makes a left turn to begin its climb up American Ridge, through the tall pine, fir, tamarack, and hemlock forest. After climbing moderately for 0. 4 mile and gaining about 200 feet of elevation, an opening in the timber allows for views to your left. After crossing the creek the timber starts to thin, allowing more views of the surrounding mountains. White-bark pine and subalpine fir are now included in the forest mix of trees, and kinnikinnick covers the ground in places.
