Ruddy Hill and Pyramid Butte

As the trail continues to climb the north slope of Park Ridge, a number of local landmarks come into view. Ruddy Hill can be identified by the red cinder slopes that give the butte its name, and can be reached by trail from Breitenbush Lake. Steep Pyramid Butte, in the foreground, also has a short, scenic spur trail to the summit that forks right from the PCT route at the 0.6 mile mark.
