Kamiak Butte Professional Review and Guide
"A map sign marks the Pine Ridge trailhead from the day-use area. The trail heads up a wide path, making several long switchbacks to the top of the ridge. Here you can begin to understand why this island of habitat is designated a national natural landmark for its natural and geologic significance. The cooler, denser north side of the ridge (including some cedars) you just ascended gives way to a dryer remnant grassland prairie habitat facing south, including arrowleaf balsamroot and other plants associated with lower sagelands. Wildflowers bloom here as early as February, peaking in May and June."
