This trail is only a half mile long and circles a pond full of dragonflies.

Features: Lake — Wildlife [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Description [Suggest Changes]

The area that Pine Canyon Trail passes through was a gravel quarry after World War II, used in the construction of Highway 71 that passes along the southern border of the park. The soils over which the trail traverses are a beautiful combination of rusty reds, tans, and cream, and the spotty appearance of the soils makes the 20 foot bluffs look like a paint horse or a calico cat.

The trail loops around a small pond that is often home to an abundance of dragonflies.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

There is a pond in the center that is home to 15 species of dragonflies. This small depression is rimmed with pine trees, which offer a shady run around the pond.
