About This Trail

[Total: 3    Average: 3.3/5]

Enjoy a peaceful three-mile loop among old-growth lodgepole pine, ponderosas and Douglas fir. Flying J Ranch is a great place for picnicking in rustic timber shelters, as well as a favorite destination for snowshoeing.

Flying J is a lovely trail all year around. The Shadow Pine trail is a 3 mile loop with most of the trail in the shade. You can also use the service road to create a smaller one mile loop which is perfect for toddler hikers to complete on their own. The service road is exposed and would add a less shady section to your hike. There are large boulders that are a little explorers favorite and a creek that intersects the trail at various points. During the summer there are a lot of wildflowers in this area.

The 1 mile version of this trail is stroller friendly but the longer, 3 mile version gets more narrow, doable for a single all terrain stroller but challenging for a double stroller.

Awesome spot for a family hike or to build up endurance for new hikers!
