Lone Pine Trail
Lone Pine Trail begins near the Red Feather Lakes Road and follows an old
ranch road along North Lone Pine Creek through a series of small valleys.
Most of the trail passes through large open meadows. The total length of the
trail is about 9.3 miles with about half of it in the Lone Pine State Wildlife
Area. After descending to North Lone Pine Creek, the trail gradually climbs
about 800 feet to about 7100 feet in altitude. The trail crosses the creek
several times with bridges provided at most crossings. There is a metal foot
bridge to the left of the first crossing for hikers and bikers. There are
three wooden bridges near the boundary of the wildlife area. Farther on there
are two bridges that have collapsed that may prove difficult for some people.
Most of the trail is easy to hike. There is only one half mile stretch that
is moderately steep. There is plenty of grass and water for livestock. Although
there is ample parking at the trailhead, this is a popular trail and can be
crowded for parking.
