Bridge Creek Lookout Site

Take the Twisp River Road to the right turn onto Little Bridge Creek Road (should be signed). Follow this good gravel road almost 3 miles to a left onto FR100. Follow FR100 to the pass where parking, a rustic camp, and 2 gates are located. Park here.
Follow the old road going East behind the gate. Sign says to close the gate after entering. Follow this road as it climbs and traverses the direction you want. Once the road starts dropping downhill, start considering leaving the road and doing a rising traverse toward the summit. Once leaving the road, game trails climb up toward the ridge. Gain the ridge and continue on ridge along the fenceline to the summit.
From the highest point, continue south on the ridge 3 minutes to a bald knob for the best views.
