E-bikes NOT allowed on Browder Ridge
Browder Ridge Trail connects to the West end of Gate Creek Trail, and you will most likely want to ride up Browder Ridge and down Gate Creek. You can also access Heart Lake Trail at the top of the ridge, which is a short out-and-back to the peak above Heart Lake.
Browder Ridge begins as a steady climb through old growth forest and pops out into some alpine meadows before long. Once on the ridge, you will head back into the tree cover and ride through a burned section of the ridge. In and out of more meadows along the ridge until you reach the intersection of Heart Lake Trail and the continuation on Gate Creek Trail.
The trail is “scrappy” for lack of a better term. Lots of rock jank which is going to be hike-a-bike in spots. Amazing views once into the Meadow which last for most of the trail.
At the Eastern end of the ridge there’s a lovely rock outcropping you can ride out onto for some great Cascade views.
Hit up Horse Creek Lodge & Outfitters if you need a guide or a shuttle to Browder/Gate Creek.
