I would not rate this trail as easy. It has some beautiful waterfalls and with Cascade Waterfall as one for a great place to have a snack or picnic.

Completed this hike yesterday before I downloaded this app as a suggestion from a hiker I met along the trail. Not an overly difficult hike however not sure I would rate it as easy for everyone. It took me 2.5 hours to complete at a fairly moderate pace. The plan is to complete a couple sections of this trail leading up the complete trail later this month. I would imagine the Pine Trail can be completed in a day but maybe a little enjoyable to spend a night out.

A nice moderately challenging trail loop. It definitely needs a moderate rating as it would be a little difficult for some people. Great views, Wolf Den and waterfall a great spot for lunch.

Lots of waterfalls and beautiful things to see! This is a fairly long one, so be ready to see it from beginning to end. Once again, you start out on Blue But be sure you catch the white blazes back to the trailhead where the TV station is. It is easy to make a mistake, and if you stay on Blue, you will be in for a much longer than 7.6 mile hike.

Loved this trail. We did the 2 miles to Cascade Falls from the entrance at WJSP Channel 28 studio entrance. For a 4 mile total hike, it had it all; flat terrain, extremely hilly terrain, lots of small falls, etc. it is one the best-marked trails we've been on.

great trail. The bare/forest regrowth portion kind of makes you feel like you are out West, but that part of the trail is definitely not as clear, lots of foliage & growth into the trail itself, we saw a few snakes. good times. the first portion (up to cascade falls) is super fun, lots to see, several little falls, easy water crossings, but had heavy traffic and some rowdy kids, did not like that, but only a handful of hikers went past cascade falls, which had a steady incline for a ways, not as fun as the first part. Will go again, probably from the op direction to really enjoy the falls in the end.
-1st try (2nd hike ever, turned around on the first incline just before bumblebee camp) 5/25/17.
-2nd try, 3rd hike ever, 5/29/17 completed
