There are several very steep pitches. Ample shade on this trail is beneficial on hot, sunny days.
The Old Pine Trail is a shady, narrow path, often used in combination with Bear Valley
, Mt Wittenberg
, and Sky
trails to make loops of various lengths. From the junction with Bear Valley
trail, near the toilets at the Divide Meadow, head across mostly level ground initially. Then take wide switchbacks up a hillside with several steep pitches. Attain the hilltop and then traverse gentle rolls before ambling down a mellow ridge line to the unction with Sky
Trail. Note: bikes are not allowed on the Old Pine Trail.
