The Pinchot Trail is a loop that is normally traveled counter-clockwise and can be separated into a Northern Loop and a Southern Loop. The trail is marked by orange blazes and side trails marked by yellow blazes. The Northern Loop is mainly flat and rocky whereas the Southern Loop has multiple elevation changes. The primary water source for the Northern Loop is Painter's Creek. The primary water source for the Southern Loop is Choke Creek. The Northern Loop has campsites early into the trail that makes overnight trips very easy to do.

Both trails are very beautiful, many water sources. I would definitely do this in a small group or solo.

Easy trail. The south trail is well used and I picked up a good amount of overnight camp site trash. Leave no trace? Please respect the trails!

Fun for a solo or small group hike. 26.4 on my gps.
