Emerald Ridge Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Befittingly, Emerald Ridge boasts deep-green meadows, yet this precious gem also houses subalpine wildflowers and hoary marmots. The ridge offers spectacular views of Tahoma Glacier, South Tahoma Glacier, and Glacier Island.
Although bikes are not allowed on the park’s backcountry trails, the closed portion of Westside Road has become a popular bike route. You may opt to bicycle from the road closure to the Round Pass trailhead. The park has installed bike racks at the Lake George trailhead, located just before the Round Pass trailhead on the left (west) side of the road, for your convenience."
