The hike to Sunrise Ridge is perfect for intermediate hikers who wish to be rewarded with stunning vistas.

The trail crosses through fir trees and alpine meadows. Views to the north include the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Vancouver Island, and Mount Baker. Hikers will enjoy wildflowers, and a little dose of the freshest air you will ever breathe.

The hike begins on the High Ridge Nature Trail, and connects to a northern trail. From the northern trail, you will reach Sunrise Point, and then connect on to the Mount Angeles Trail. This will lead you to  Sunrise Ridge.
