The Pine Canyon Trail Loop is a fairly quick, fairly easy little hike that’s easy to get to if you’re in Pine. This loop can be done as is or you can take advantage of the other trails that connect to make a longer adventure out of this route. There’s a nice mix of sun and shade, so this one won’t get too unbearable on hotter days.
Despite the bit of shade, we still recommend bringing plenty of water and dressing to protect from the sun if you’re here in the hotter months. The trails are well-maintained, but the signage can be unclear and confusing sometimes. A downloaded GPS route can help clear things up if needed.
From the trailhead, take #26 to where the trail splits. You can go either way but we’ll describe it clockwise. Turn left onto Pine Canyon Trail. Stay right where #26 heads off to the left and again where #28 heads off to the left. At the 4-way junction, take a sharp right to return to the trailhead.
