Patrick Ridge Trail - Fortine

Patrick Ridge Trail (860) leads to a lookout that offers a panoramic view of the Tobacco Valley from Stryker and, on clear days, the snow-covered peaks of Glacier National Park. This is a strenuous hike with frequently changing topography. The trail winds through large openings, heavy stands of timber, rock outcroppings, and ridges. Dickey and Murphy Lakes can be seen along the hike.Length: 7.5 milesTrail Begins: Road 1002Trail Ends: 1 mile south of Mt.
