Description

Access this trail via the intersection of Ingomar and Kummer Roads - behind the Smokey Bear sign and the Ledgewood Shelter. This is part of the original bridle trail system and is very wide in parts. Look for purple blazes on trees.

This trail spits you out onto the West Ridge Road near the entrance to Koto Buki. It is mostly used to climb from the Golf Course area to the West and South Ridge parts of North Park. The Purple Trail also provides access to the Koto Buki Trail and Denny's Trail. Not for the faint of heart, this trail features a tough climb, but keeps you off the roads.
