Miller Canyon & Pine Valley Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route offers several loop, out-and-back, and point-to-point options. The following description comprises a loop through Miller Canyon to the Carmel River confluence, up Pine Valley to the river’s headwaters at Church Creek Divide, then back to China Camp via the Pine Ridge Trail. This order assumes hikers will spend the final night in scenic Pine Valley, followed by a 2000-foot climb over the remaining 5.3 miles. Taking the reverse route would mean spending the last night at less scenic Miller Canyon Camp, followed by a nearly 3000-foot climb over the final 7.1 miles to the trailhead."
