Hikers might feel like there’s no end in sight on the long, steep climb that characterizes the Bishop Ridge Trail. But really, the trail does level off. You just need to put in the miles! The trail levels out somewhat on the ridge and then leapfrogs from one ridge-top meadow to another, passing through intermittent sections of dense fir forest. So really, whatever the effort required, it’s worth it, if you enjoy exploring lush forest ecosystems.
