If backpacking and hiking in the pines sounds like a great time, then this would be the spot to start. This easy off-road trail leads to Highline Trail #31 which is a great hiking trail that runs along the Mogollon Rim for over 50 miles. Beautiful vistas of rim canyons, brushy hills, and distant mountains. Unique rock formations and wonderful stands of Ponderosa pine. Fire is an important aspect of the wild environment. The Dude Fire of 1990 burned portions of the forest along the Highline Trail; thus, this trail is an ideal place to observe how our forests rejuvenate themselves after a fire. The Highline Trail, established in 1870, was used to travel between homesteads and to attend school in the town of Pine. Zane Grey and Babe Haught used the Highline Trail while hunting. The portion of the Highline Trail from Washington Park Trailhead and Pine Trailhead is part of the Arizona Trail.
