The Pine Mountain Loop — also called the Pine Mountain Ledge Trail — is an easy to moderately difficult loop trail, 1.9 miles from the Pine Link Trailhead to the summit of Pine Mountain, then 1.6 miles from the summit to Horton Center and back to trailhead. From the Pinkham B Road Pine Link trailhead, a gravel road meanders through .9 miles of hardwood forest. Follow the Ledge Trail into the woods to your right. Be aware that the Ledge Trail has some steep, rocky sections. The foundation pilons of an old fire tower is a good place to enjoy lunch. The trail continues about .4 miles to the road, turn left and its 1.6 miles back to the Pine Link Trailhead. The trail is primarily used for hiking and nature trips and features beautiful wild flowers. Its best used from March until November. Dogs can navigate this trail but must be leashed.
The trail begins here, but you can drive down the gravel road to the gate and park there.
Th view from the top is breathtaking.
