I did the ranch loop, which includes part of the Highline trail that circles up and over the plateau near the Pine trailhead. It was a magnificent view. Only complaint is that some of the trail markers at the top of the plateau were vandalized/missing. Crummy people.

I hiked 4 miles in and out, fabulous beautiful trail. It wasn't strenuous but kept the heart rate up. Great hike, highly recommended.

There's a short stretch of this trail between Horton Creek, and Derrick trails in Payson. It is FAR from easy.

I only did a seven mile section of the 50 miles. I started at the town of Pine and hiked 7 miles west and back. Nice hike, many scenic areas. Elevation put you in the pines and not the desert.
