Family Friendly A flat, well defined, no major drop offs, perfect for our 5, 3, and 1 year olds to all hike on their own.

One trailhead is in Pine Campground with limited parking (unimproved area right at trailhead), other end is adjacent to private property with no parking.

Description

The trail starts from the Chipmunk loop side of Pine Campground and runs to the Osha Trail (T10), sharing the same trail for about a quarter mile. The trail is wide and flat, following old railroad bed. Use is restricted to hiking, running, biking, horses, and dirt bikes (no four wheelers or side by sides allowed).

The trail can be used as a connection from the Osha Trail (T10) to the Fir Trail T122 and Little Apache Trail (T124) by walking through the Pine Campground and crossing Hwy 244 to the Fir Campground. It also connects to the Pine Trail - North (T568) at the halfway point, allowing connection to FSR 206C and the Bailey Canyon Trail.
