Comments
Comments: The trail starts out easy, you'll walk on flat to moderate grades for a mile plus. Then it gets steep fast. There are several boulder fields to get through, I started my hike at 7am and they were wet going up, much drier coming down. Once you reach the ridge you'll have easy grades then start climbing again. At about 3800 on the topo map, the trail takes a hard left, its easy to get lost here. The trail looks like it goes straight but then peters out. Retrace your steps, look for a large boulder on your right (it was on your left when ascending). Find a way around the boulder to get up behind it, then you'll see how the trail continues up through the boulders. There is no sign and no blazes. I set a waypoint here on my GPS so that I would have better guidance coming down. It was a real help. Returning on Pine Bend trail is steep, take your time. Total hike, 3 hours to junction Pine Bend and Scaur Ridge, another hour to Middle Tri. Great way to do this hike if you want to avoid the slides
