Route Description for Oak Spring Trail
The Oak Spring Trail is a lovely hike through the forests near Pine, Arizona. This route doesn’t have a big view, but it’s a very pleasant trip through nature. With the varying scenery, the creeks, and the wildlife, it’s a worthwhile trip even if it doesn’t take you to a defined viewpoint.
We do recommend hiking in a group on this trail as it’s not very busy at all and users report wildlife encounters. Additionally, some rocky, loose sections of the trail make good boots and poles helpful to have. Bring lots of water if you’re hiking this route on a hot day.
From the trailhead, take the Arizona Trail across the road and then stay left across Pine Creek. You’ll enjoy a relaxed stroll across a ridge before descending a steep part of the trail off the end of the hill, where the route ends about halfway down. From here, turn around and retrace your steps.
