The seldom-seen topography in the Alta Toquima Wilderness has much to offer both the casual recreationist and the serious nature lover. Beginning in juniper-pinyon pine woodland, hikers quickly encounter lush riparian foliage along the lower reaches of tumbling Pine Creek. Aspens and limber pines are dominant on the upper slopes of the canyon, until desert-alpine vegetation takes over at the summit of Mt. Jefferson. Nearing the crest, the Pine Creek Trail intersects the Mt. Jefferson Trail, which runs north-south along the crest of the triple-summited massif. The gentle topography along the plateau allows for easy hiking, and the low-growing, alpine vegetation permits excellent vistas from one horizon to the other. The route eventually leaves the crest to descend into remote Bucks Canyon before cresting over a saddle and returning to Pine Creek. Although discernible trail is lacking over parts of the route, the cross-country hiking is not particularly difficult.
