Pine Mountain Ridge
Pine Mountain Ridge Description
At 7,420' in elevation, Pine Mountain Ridge sits in the center of all the action. Extending down (west) from the peak of Pine Mountain, Pine Mountain Ridge acts as a south wall to Prairie Fork and a north wall to Fish Fork. The ridge continues west, down into the San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork). Pine Mountain Ridge is also home to a couple of trails; the Pine Mountain Ridge Trail and the Fish Fork Trail. This large geographic feature can be seen from almost anywhere up in the local mountains. For some of the best views, check it out from Inspiration Point.
