Hiking Auxier Ridge trail  

Auxier ridge is a 2.1 mile trail that can be combined with other trails to make a loop of done as an out and back. With sheer cliffs on both sides of the ridge this trail offers some of the best views in the state. Parking is limited and it can be very busy at the trail head so plan to arrive early and come prepared as the lack of vegetation on parts of the ridge leaves hikers exposed to the elements.
