The lower section of North Ridge starts directly accross the fireroad from where upper North Ridge ends at the Woods creek parking lot at the orange gate. It is not as technically demanding as upper north ridge and does not have exposure. This trail sees less use and can be overgrown later in the season if it has not been cleared recently.

The solal can beat up on your ankles with scratches if the trail has not been maintained. This being said, the trail is a great time and adds 2 miles to the upper north ridge. A small 3-way intersection has parking for a couple of cars, but do not block the gate when parking your vehicle.
