Pine City Trail

The Pine City Trail begins by leading northward from the Pine City backcountry registry. This route follows an dirt road that was once used to access the mines of Pine City. The trail leads northward one and a half miles to the abandoned mining town. The remains of the small community are very limited. Several closed shafts are visible from the trail, as are the plentiful flora of the area. Unusual rock formations are also abundant along this route.
