Start of Pine Mountain Trail

Trail Thoughts and Musings

This strenuous 4.8 mile round trip trail climbs 1,100 feet to the summit of Pine Mountain. It starts innocently enough at one end of Bloom's Creek Campground. Parking is limited to campers only. For day hikers, it is best to park by the Redwood Loop (See Hike #1). From there you can use a trail that parallels the road towards the town of Boulder Creek. The first road for the campground is soon reached. Turn right and follow it to the gate.
