Mallardy Ridge

Mallardy Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"Mallardy Ridge is a spectacular wild area that is seldom enjoyed by summer hikers because there are few true trails and no protection from motorized recreationists. Come winter, the old logging roads become de facto trails as the snow drifts over and around them, turning this heavily roaded area into a wild, scenic wonderland.

No matter how the ridge is explored, there is plenty of enjoyment for all. In addition to the simple beauty of the snowy playground immediately at hand, the views of the high, craggy peaks if the Mountain Loop region are astounding."

We followed the route per the trail description and took road 4032 off of 4030. Road 4032 has LOTS of deadfall, so you will spend a fair amount of your time working through the fallen trees. The good news was that there was no one else willing to do that much work, so we had the place to ourselves. The other piece of information that might be helpful is that upon our return to our car, there were 100's of sledders near the river and parking was at a premium. If you go, go early. It was quiet along the was and a great place to spend New Years Day.
