HIKING ROUTE 1

  • From the parking area (6626'), begin in a southwest direction and stay left on the main trail at the first fork, about 100 yards from the parking area.
  • At about ¼ mile, a flowing spring descends down the gully and crosses the trail.
  • Follow the trail for about 1¾ miles to the Pine Mountain ridgeline (elevation 7270'). Excellent views from here.
  • Upon reaching the ridgeline, turn left and follow another dirt road up for ½ mile (gaining 250') to a sometimes broken Fish Fork Trail sign (elevation 7520').
  • Do not continue up the ridge. Instead, head southeast and follow the dirt road and then a use trail for about 1 mile to the summit.
  • The summit is an obvious high point in a grove of sugar pine trees. There is about 75' of gain, just as one reaches the top.
