Fridley Gap Professional Review and Guide
"Some days, you can hike for miles and feel like you never left the parking lot. Other times, it can feel like you walked through four different worlds in a single afternoon. Thankfully, you’ll find Fridley Gap fits the latter experience. Squeezed together accordion-like, the long, parallel ridges of First, Second, Third, and Fourth Mountains
concentrate an awful lot of up-and-downs into a day of hiking, and, consequently, a number of different habitats.
At the lower elevations, stream valleys attract deer to the
water’s edge. Skinny rays of sunlight filter down to the forest floor through hemlock. A half mile away stands another world: the dry, barren ridgetops. With no tree cover, views stretch for miles. Two different worlds, one hike."
