Johnson Ridge Trail

US Highway 2 to Beckler River Road
Thibodaux, LA 70301

Start in an abandoned logging and burn area and climb the ridge into timber. Stay on the middle of the ridge, climbing steadily for about a mile, where you enter Wild Sky Wilderness. The trail levels off along the ridge top near Sunrise Mountain, then descends and climbs to 5,400 feet to Scorpion Mountain amidst huckleberry meadows. For a side trip you can descend 400 feet for a half mile on a spur trail and enter Henry M. Jackson Wilderness to Joan Lake. On this hike enjoy fall color changes, when the huckleberry leaves turn a brilliant, vermillion red.
