Red Pine Trail is named for the vast amount of Red Pines that once dominated the mountain prior to the lumber era. The trail is a short .42 mile connector from the Butternut Trail to Loyalsock Road on the mountain top. The yellow blazed trail follows old lumber roads through a forest consisting mostly of Beech and Birch. The trail begins climbing steeply but the climb eases off after a U-turn. Hiking from the Butternut Trail to Loyalsock Road offers several options for a loop hike. At Loyalsock Road turn left to walk about a mile to the Loyalsock Trail. Turn left on the trail and it is 1.6 miles to the park office or, while going this direction on the Loyalsock Trail, in .35 miles turn left on yellow blazed woods road and reconnect to the Butternut Trail. For a longer loop go right from Red Pine Trail on Loyalsock Road less than a mile reaching the Loyalsock Trail. Go left on the trail and it is 3 miles to the park office. Go right on Loyalsock Trail for a 1.5 mile hike to Alpine Falls on Toms Run.
