    Courtney Jones reviewed Pine Knot Trail to Grand View Point

    about 1 year ago

    I was super stoked to do this hike, but after driving almost an hour to get to it, there were signs posted saying an adventure pass was required to park there. The surrounding area is pretty residential with virtually no street parking, so I wasn't able to hike it. I wish I would have been forewarned about the whole pass situation, but I'm sure it's a stunning hike!

    Courtney Jones reviewed Devils Gate via Flint Canyon

    It was an easy hike, just really exposed for the majority of the time, so bring water and wear sunscreen. Dog friendly (which is awesome) and horse friendly (which is what I didn't like about it because there were massive piles of horse dung all along the trail). Once you go through the tunnel, there's a gate that is typically locked with a no trespassing sign, so go down the trail and take a right along the dried creek to get to the gate. Don't go under the bridge, because that's a different trail and I'm not sure where it leads. It's pretty cool. I'd recommend it.

    Okay.. So, this was one of the most frustrating hikes I've ever done. Not because of the hike itself, but because I accidentally complicated things. Therefore, I want to help others with this post.
    Take the trail to the falls, then, back track for maybe 30 or so yards. There will be a small stake with a pink ribbon marking a rather steep "trail." Once you make it up, go left (you won't have much of a choice in this). You'll go along this trail and over the waterfall you just saw below. Follow the trail and whenever you're not sure where to go, look for one of the following to guide you: pink ribbon, spray painted arrows on rocks, and cairns. I promise that when there's not an obvious trail, one of those things will be around to get you where you need to go. Finally, to get to the actual mine, you will see a relic up on the left side of the canyon. Once you're up by the relic, the mine is directly to the left of it. There's a giant rock blocking the entrance to the mine, so if you're not looking for it, it's very easy to overlook. This is where I messed up. I didn't see a mine so I kept going; which, if you do, there is another "mine" on the left side of the canyon, but it's like 20ish feet long then ends.
    Anyway, I hope this helps! I spent a solid 4 hours scouring the canyon and making my own paths in attempts to find the canyon that I had literally been standing right next to and just didn't realize. Definitely a beautiful hike overall, only saw one other person on the trail the entire time. Some "bouldering" but my beagle handled it fine, with some occasional help from me on the higher ones. I would highly recommend this hike, as long as you follow my directions! Haha. Enjoy!

    My dog and I went on this hike just before sunrise and the fog was amazing. It filled the canyon, which made for some pretty awesome sights. The hike itself was not hard in the least bit, but good views for the entirety of it. Also, it wasn't loud at all, and I only saw one other person on the trail.. All I heard was the chirping of birds; granted, I was there pretty early. Anyway, I would recommend it, especially for a sunrise hike!
