Blue Lake Ridge Trail For ATV Riding

The 22nd most popular all terrain vehicle trail in Washington.

  Washington, US


  June 26, 2016

The Blue Lake Ridge Trail (#271) is an 11.7 mile trail that leaves the trailhead on Road 23 and climbs steadily through dense conifer forests. The trail crosses several roads before coming to Blue Lake (at mile 3). The heavilyused trail proceeds along a rolling ridge, passing by Mouse Lake before descending to Trail #270. This trail has been reconstructed to ATV standards. A short section of the trail above Blue Lake is Hiker Only to minimize noise near the lake. Other users must use Jumpoff Trail #271A and Bishop Ridge Trail #272 to continue the loop. Blue Lake is at the headwaters of Blue Lake Creek.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is prohibited on all Forest Service Roads.

Overall, Blue Lake Ridge Trail is the 22nd most popular ATV riding trail of all 34 ATV trails in Washington.
