Pinyon Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Dry Pinyon Ridge stands just high enough on the desert rim to support a sparse growth of pinyon pines. Similar to other “islands in the desert sky” such as the Pinyon Mountains and Whale Peak to the southeast, this ridge offers expansive views framed by picturesque foregrounds of eroded boulders and gnarled pinyons. Along the crest of the ridge, an old four-wheel-drive road called the Wilson Trail has functioned for a long time as a hiking-only footpath. The route leads to almost the exact center of a state wilderness area that is completely free of motorized travel."
--Jerry Schad, Afoot & Afield: San Diego County (Wilderness Press).
