    Route Description for Highline and Pine Loop

    The Highline and Pine Loop is a super quick, very easy hike near Pine that is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Use it to get outside with the kids, with the grandparents, with the dogs, or by yourself as a brief leg-stretcher. You can enjoy the quick trip or you can use the connecting trails to lengthen your adventure if you’d prefer a longer hike.

    While this loop is easy enough for all skill levels, it’s not ADA compliant as it’s not paved. Hikers in wheelchairs should evaluate the hard-packed dirt footing before planning to use this trail.

    From the trailhead, you can hike the route either clockwise or counterclockwise. Clockwise, you’ll head around to the base of the rock formation beside you, hiking along its edge. Stay right at both junctions. Make a sharp right to return along the southern side of the loop, where you’ll find yourself back at the trailhead.
