From Oregon

The Sedum Ridge Trail climbs up to Mowich Ridge, moving from Washington’s Yacolt Burn State Forest into the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and connecting with the Pacific Crest Trail. This loop takes in these two trails, part of abandoned FR 41, plus a segment of the CG 2000 (Red Bluff) Road. The rewards at the top of Mowich Butte are views of the Washington Cascades and closer volcanic features, such as Trout Creek Hill. Note that the Sedum Ridge Trail does not see systematic maintenance. The trailtread is becoming overgrown with Oregon grape, red huckleberry, thimbleberry, and vine maple. Many years’ worth of debris covers the trail as well.
