“Head up and out of Pine Canyon switching back through the trees before the hard slog uphill.”
— Philip McAllister on Apr 4, 2013
DescriptionThis fireroad trail starts getting steep with some uphill, then a short nice swooping downhill and and another stream crossing before heading up into the trees again for the final climb up to BBQ terrace.
Enjoy the last of the sparsely travelled pine canyon trails before starting the steep uphill climb to the campground and South Gate Rd. Look for coyotes and deer up to the left. The last section of the climb is rough going - it's not technical just steep and drawn out - you know that you're getting close when you see the fence in the distance just below the ridge.
Beware the upper section of this trail is adobe mud - in the rain it will accumulate on your tires and build up until it starts to jam in the frame.... then when you hike it will build up on your shoes....
Rating for this section is GREAT - but only for the feeling that you get when you're done with it...
