Pine Mountain is a 13.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Sedona, AZ that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and horses and is accessible from April until November. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
From Phoenix: Take I-17 north. About 5 miles north of the hwy 69 exit for Prescott you will come to the Dugas road exit. Exit the freeway and take Dugas road east for approximately 18 to 20 miles. There is a campground here at the trailhead. Park and have fun.
Good Hike. Did this on a Saturday morning. There was one car at the trail head. Never saw a hiker on the trail until the very end where I ran into to some folks on horseback going in. Its a long drive in off I-17. But will worth it. A portion of the creek is running with some pools with fish in them. When you reach the top of pine mountain there are some great views to the east of what i assume is the Verde River canyon. Enjoyed this hike. Would be a nice weekend camp trip with the campsites at the trail head. Enjoy
