Tronsen Ridge

Tronsen Ridge Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Start high, stay high, and enjoy the endless bounty of the wild country between the Cascade Crest and the dry, open deserts of eastern Washington. Tronsen Ridge provides a little of both worlds. Long, dry ridges topped with open meadows and wildflower fields resemble the desert gardens of the Yakima Plateau, but dense stands of fir and ponderosa pine offer up the flavor of the mountains, with pine-scented valleys and cool woodland slopes.

The glorious meadows and forests atop the long ridge are wonderful playgrounds for dogs and people, but the people will also enjoy the outstanding views from the high knobs of the route. At various points, Tronsen Ridge grants peeks out to Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, Mount Stuart, and countless other lesser peaks in the eastern Cascades."

Headed up to the trail from the southern entrance and there was a slide of rock and trees blocking passage from about 5 miles from the trail head...unsure if the northern entrance is clear.

The trail had several fallen trees requiring either climbing over (human) or under (dog). The falls are dry at this time of year but the trees are beautiful, the short trip across the highway to the suspension bridge is well worth the extra time.

The trail was well groomed up until I hit a rock slide, about and hour into the hike, that was next to imposible to get over with my dog ( huskie/samoyed mix with lots of hiking experience). The foilage was changing and the colors were spectacular. I recomend the hike, it's just shorter right now then what the book describes. I notified the Rangers and they will not be able to take care of the slide until next season.
For more specific directions, the trail head starts on milepost 53 on SR410. You need a Trails Pass to park and use the trail.
