Hike the Pine Hill – West Branch Trail’s entire length while summiting three high peaks: Big Indian, Eagle and Balsam Mountains. The hike passes the stream side Biscuit Brook lean-to before climbing steeply to Big Indian. From there it’s a ridgeline hike to Balsam before descending from Belleayre’s false summit into Pine Hill.
This is a challenging 15 mile hike with over 3100 feet of climbing. Headlamps are required since we’ll be finishing after dark. Depending on the pace of the group, the hike could take longer than the estimated 12 hours.
Event Duration: 15 miles, 12 hours
