Whites Ridge
Whites Ridge starts at the end of the paved part of the Ahtanum North Fork Road and runs up to Darland Mountain. Eagle Nest Vista is high up on Whites Ridge off the Mid Fork Ahtanum Creek Road. Whites Ridge offers a few other view points off the Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail. Norm’s Check Point, Make-out Hill and at the Gray Rock Trail are three of the best view points.
