Hiking at Piney Lake

Piney River Ranch, Hiking at Piney Lake

The Upper Piney trail begins at the end of Red Sandstone Road, outside of the Piney River Ranch entrance, and ends at Upper Piney Lake, and is roughly 7 miles each way. Begin your journey outside of the ranch (where public parking is available), pass Piney Lake and gently climb through an open meadow before entering the forest and reaching a cascading waterfall about three miles in. The average hiker will have no problem reaching the waterfall destination in about an hour and a half. However, the trail becomes less distinct and more difficult after the falls, and becoming steeper as it approaches Upper Piney Lake and takes you to Knee Knocker Pass.
