Foley Ridge Trail ist ein 14.7 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Blue River, Oregon. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert, gejoggt und gebackpackt werden. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Entfernung: 14.7 miles Höhenunterschied: 2,368 feet Routentyp: Hin & zurück

My partner and I took the Foley Ridge trail back to the trailhead from the James Creek trail on August 30, as we did not have a great experience coming into the area on the Louise Creek trail on the 26th. Foley Ridge trail was clear (though much burnout) all the way out, and there were some ponds to get filtered water as well. Word of caution - the Louise Creek trail has much burnout after the first 2 miles which makes the trail very hard to find in a couple of places. Also, the numerous creeks and ponds along that trail were all dried up, so by the time we made camp at Buck Meadows we were quite low on water. Thanks much to David Neese (see recent comment) who gave us a bottle of water and encouragement that the Foley Ridge trail was a good way out.

I hiked Foley Ridge to Substitute Point on November 10th. The burn area begins less than two miles in. The beginning is lush and green. Hiking in a burn area means an eroded trail which is sometimes hard to see. Overall though deadfall was fine, and I was able to follow footprints in frozen ground, then snow and finally mud. Sign was easy to find at 4.4 mi to Substitute Point. Trail was not always discernible from this point, but footprints again helped. Used micro-spikes for last climb to top as steep and icy. Views are outrageous of South Sister. Best to do in fall without high heat. Road up to trailhead was great even on dirt with good signage.

The burn was impressive. The views were great. Hiked up to substitute point the trail was hard to find but a little bit of know how and tracking other people’s foot prints we were able to keep on the trail. It was a amazing view!

Good trail to get out to the PCT from the McKenzie Bridge area. As a day hike, I highly recommend taking this trail to Substitute Point - about 5 miles each way with spectacular 360 Degree views of the entire area at the top. There was fire damage in 2017, but Forest Service was working to clear the trail June of 2018. Would check on progress just to be safe.

Forested trail until reaching the PCT/Junction to Linton Meadow. Still lots of snow covering the trails near the PCT. The ascent is steady and not cruelly steep. Not really a 'fun' trail. Bug nuisance factor is very high. This was an out & back hike.
