Pine Mountain Ridge Trail Description
The Pine Mountain Ridge Trail is located south of Wrightwood along Pine Mountain Ridge. The trail head starts just above the entrance to Lupine Campground, in Prairie Fork. The Pine Mountain Ridge Trail climbs to the top of the ridge along with the Fish Fork Trail. From here, it continues west along the ridge. The Pine Mountain Ridge Trail offers views of both Prairie Fork and Fish Fork, as well as the San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork). Most of the trail is pretty well maintained, especially when closer to the campground. This is a good day hike if you are staying in Lupine or Cabin Flat Campgrounds.
