Update

Short bursts of speed paired with slower technical maneuvering on this ridgeline trail.

Overview

Larrabee State Park requires the use of a Discover Pass for every vehicle that enters the park.

This trail is open to pedestrians and sight lines can be poor. Be on the lookout!

Description

The full length of the Upper Ridge Trail is accessed by a short hike-a-bike out of the parking lot. The extra work is reward by a new extension of trail from the top of the mountain to the first bend in Cleator Road you can also ride down the road to this same spot.

Whichever entrance you choose, you're in for a treat. Upper Ridge Trail provides a well stocked playground with burst of speed followed by slow technical work. Along the way you'll dodge roots and roll down sandstone slabs.

Although the trail can be narrow, there's generally plenty of room for wide bars. Although one notable slab-ride to tree pinch doesn't feel particularly spacious. The trail does requires a lot of focus, but make sure to also enjoy the scenery as you scramble through the trees and over moss covered rocks.

Keep an eye out for a trail splitting to the left. This signifies the end of Upper Ridge Trail and it's a good detour to avoid the hike-a-bike climbing on the Middle Ridge Trail.
