Route Description for Highline Trail #31
The Highline Trail is an easy hike near Pine that is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Use it to get outside with the kids, with the dogs, or by yourself as a scenic leg-stretcher. You can enjoy part of it, do it as a long out and back, or use the connecting trails to lengthen your adventure into a multi-day trip.
This route is quite flat and straightforward. Bring lots of water if you plan to hike this trail in the heat of the summertime. Christopher Creek can provide a refill point, but you should be prepared with enough to get you through if needed.
You can use either trailhead. The route follows the base of the mesa from west to east. There’s very little elevation change, so this is a nice relaxed trip for the most part. Enjoy the shade there is, the calm of the forest, and the views that peek through. When you’re ready, turn back and return to the trailhead or keep going to wherever you’re off to next.
