Trail Overview

Lone Pine is a fun twisty trail in a burn area in the White River National Forest. Since it goes through a burn area, the aspen trees are young and short, opening up the views of the surrounding mountains. The trail is a moderate challenge because it has lots of steep hill climbs with dry loose dirt and loose big rocks in the trail. There are a couple of rock obstacles on the climbs with big rock ledges to get up, but they're wide and with multiple line choices. Some sections on the climbs are very steep with some dry roots and sometimes even rock slabs. Other less steep parts of the trail are more fast and flowy, with twisty turns through an aspen tree forest. There's a couple creek crossings that are probably shallow in fall but could be deep in spring. All of the climbing is done in the south-to-north direction. If riding north to south you'll be going down all of the steep sections. Overall it's a really fun and well-maintained trail.

Difficulty

Intermediate single track with several sections that are very steep and loose and rocky.
