    Directions to Trailhead

    Hiking the Pine Woods Interpretive Loop Trail doesn’t take long, but is an excellent way to find solitude in the woods. The less frequented area along AB-68 is free from the crowds that Highway 40 sees. Take the family on an educational outing along this easy forested trail.
