Directions • From Interstate 80, drive south on State Road 36 for 7.1 miles. Turn east onto Erda Way. After 1 mile, turn south onto Droubay Road and follow it for 2.5 miles. Turn east again onto 2000 North. After 1 mile, turn south again onto Blue Peak Road. Follow the road about three-quarters of a mile to a parking lot with signs for Pine Canyon Conservation Area. The trailhead is there.
Pine Canyon Conservation Area offers some flat trails through grasses and a view of the west slope of the Oquirrh Mountains. From the trailhead, follow a dirt path to the old road. Turn north and follow to road to make a clockwise loop. On the northeast end of the loop, the trail will turn to the west and the old road turns into dirt tracks. The tracks soon succumb to just a narrow dirt trail. Follow it ontop of the short ridge and follow the trail back toward the trail head to make a loop. DestinationLoop
