“A short loop arround Beebe Pond.”— AndyGriffin Griffin
From the end of Red Tail, Pine Tree Loop goes in both directions. If you turn left, you'll roll downhill towards the pond. The trail turns before the pond and continues downhill, rolling over many tree roots. A small stream exits at the south-west tip of the pond, and the trail crosses this stream at a broken concrete spillway.
After the crossing, two trails intersect with Pine Tree Loop, Bear Paw to the north-west, and The Shoot to the south-west.
Pine Tree Loop continues to follow the shores of the pond, passing another intersection on the left, with a connector trail to Backpacker. The trail now winds through the trees at the other end of the pond, and over a bridge that crosses spring mud.
After another intersection, this time with Backpacker itself, the trail turns back towards its start, on a wide unremarkable trail, passing Shortcut on the left.
If you're heading back to Red Tail, Shortcut is preferable to backtracking up the meadow. Otherwise, it ends right were it began.
