Part of the Vallecito, Colorado area.

Pine River Trail: Easy to Moderate. The Pine River alternates between meadows and canyon, frequently flowing peacefully on the flat valley floor. The boundary of the Weminuche Wilderness is 2.7 miles up the trail, with fantastic fishing, and the turnoff to Emerald Lake is at mile 6.3 (Trail #528). The trail continues to ascend, sometimes gradually and sometimes moderately. This trail is a point-to-point and can be combined with a variety of other trails in the Vallecito, Colorado area.
