Wonderfully short, but beautiful hike! No crazy altitude views, but incredibly beautiful and lush forest with a hidden historic homestead, and plenty of water crossings. I would definitly recommend this in the summer as it has a lot of shade. The only downfall is the parking and the beginning of the trail is a bit hard to find, however you can really mix and match the trail to add or decrease it's length.

This is a popular area in a campground. That being said, in the winter it is a great area for a relaxing hike. Although the parking lot was full, we encountered only a couple people during our hike. This is a popular place for mountain biking. There are several creek crossings affording a chance to filter out some water. These creeks are shallow in most areas, so bring something to scoop with. The first third of the trail is actually a road. This is the only way in during the off-season, and is very easy. There are also a few small fields along the trail perfect for a hammock hang, tarp shelter, or just a good ol cup of coffee. Overall, a short and sweet hike.

Nice short loop with a fun fast decent. Nothing too hard about this trail. I think Pine tree loops into Explore loop which can be a easy fun short ride.
