Pine Mountain Truck Road Date Climbed: May 21, 2013
Appropriately, started at the gate with two mountain bikers. Good folks. The history here reminded me of the days 10-year-old yours truly would ride his Stingray on the fire trails in the Oakland Hills, several years before the grand race here. This is my new favorite spot. I was interested to see the lone pine at the top, the rock walls running the ridgeline, and enjoyed standing on the summit rock to take in 360 degrees of beauty.
Nice views, the walk to the summit was nice. But going to Carson Falls is the better walk, and after the falls continue the trail down the canyon. Follow the creek, very nice and the HIKE back will give you a workout.
