Pinch-Em-Tight (#223) Professional Reviews and Guides
"In 2010, a fire roared through this area, burning a great deal of the forests along Rush Ridge, though the Pinch-Em-Tight Ridge was spared. This loop follows both ridges, providing chances to see both the open high-elevation forests along the Pinch-Em-Tight Trail and the recovering burn on Rush Ridge, whose fire-opened canopies allow views over the surrounding ridges and ravines."
