Ballantine Cabin Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This hike follows Pine Creek Trail to Ballantine Trail then climbs to a cutoff for an unofficial trail to an old cabin. An even more unofficial trail leads you back over the ridge to rejoin the Ballantine, which you follow back to the trailhead. The route over the hill to the cabin and back is steep and sometimes hard to follow, but it's worth it. Along the way,You will see plenty of cool rock formations, but in spring, all the pretty flowers will vie for your attention. Features: Transition desert, an old cabin, and boulders upon boulders; in spring, running creeks and abundant wildflowers."
