Comments: We did this hike on President's Day, which was a cool, rainy, gray day. As a result, we were one of only a few people at the park and had the trails mostly to ourselves. The Pine Ridge Trail displays several enormous loblolly pines and a carpet of quiet, red pine needles set against deep green trees. At the top of the ridge we took in long, foggy views of the Colorado River, cattle pastures, and stands of woods. The hike was not hard, but was certaily vigorous, requiring us to climb and descend hills repeatedly. A great day - we highly reccomend this hike, whatever the weather!
