TELEPHONE RIDGE SOUTH
Distance 9.7 km loop, height gain 339 m, moderate
Telephone | Disconnect | Long Distance | Braggin Rights or Whitetail
This is becoming a popular loop. The more interesting start takes Snowshoe Hare to Telephone, then north through sheltered open forest to Disconnect. Alternatively or you can follow multi-use Telephone all the way from the parking lot.
Start: West Bragg Creek Recreation Area parking. West Bragg Map North
Difficulty: Easy hiking on good trails.
Note: It's a multi-use trail as far as Disconnect. An easy climb up a ridge on Disconnect takes you to a junction in thick forest with Long Distance. About 500 m north on Long Distance, just past the gate, is the best viewpoint on the ridge complete with log seat for lunch. About halfway down Long Distance to Demi-Tel there is a viewpoint on the west side where you can look across to Merlin View with Moose Mountain in the background. On reaching Demi-Tel you have several options, though most people continue on down Long Distance and Braggin Rights to the parking lot.
