Starting from East Walker Road, the trail runs along FR 059 southwest into Pine Grove Canyon within the Pine Grove Hills. Beyond the intersection with FR 193, the road is rocky and infrequently maintained. The embedded and loose rocks make for a rough and slow ride. Sagebrush and scrub brush grows around the trail, which is quite corrugated along the sections that are not rocky. Climbing toward the hills, FR 059 rolls into and out of shallow canyons. An historic information board marks the entrance to the area where there are remains from the old mining camp of Pine Grove. Special Attractions: Extensive remains of Pine Grove ghost town. Short, scenic trail to a historic, wellpreserved ghost town. Challenging 4WD track from Pine Grove to the intersection with Western #36: Scott’s Canyon Trail.
