Porcupine Creek to Midnight Ridge

Looking back into Porcupine Creek and the way up

1 Start at the trailhead for Porcupine Creek.

2 Walk to the Y in the creek turn left. Do not go up the trail to the Ridge

3 Walk along creek until finding a suitable way up to Midnight Ridge.

4 No trail so work your way up

5 Heading for the route down from Midnight Peak see blog on Midnight Peak https://willski.ca/midnight-peak/

6 Again there is no set trail down so try and keep to the high ridge

7 Lower down a trail appears and comes out on the route down from Baldy Pass

8 After leaving the rubble of the creek look for a trail or old road to go back to Porcupine Creek.
