Pine Ridge Trail: China Camp to Pine Falls (2 days / 14 miles)

The Pine Ridge Trail is a great backpacking trail in the Ventana Wilderness. On this trip, we started at the eastern trailhead at China Camp Campground, along Tassajara Road. From there, the trail heads west and through the Santa Lucia Mountains to Pine Valley. The best part, located at the end of Pine Valley, is Pine Falls. The water is frigid, but there's something wonderful about getting to swim in the middle of any backpacking trip.
