Pine Flat Trail #1219


This trail is within the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. Beautiful camping on large river terrace. A short steep hike accessing Pine Flat and the Illinois Wild and Scenic River. Trail ends at the confluence of Florence Creek and the beginning of Florence Way Trail #1219A.

Pine Flat is a popular camping area that offers access to the Illinois Wild and Scenic River. Please be careful not to disturb any of the historic homestead sites in and around Pine Flat.

There are many opportunities for camping but we ask that if you intend to have a campfire to please use an establsihed fire ring and avoid creating new ones.

This trail is located in the Biscuit Fire area that burned in the year 2002. Although Forest Service trail crews have been repairing and maintaining many of the affected trails since the Biscuit Fire, visitors should take into consideration (because of the substantially increased risk of fire-killed snags falling) that travel and camping may be more difficult and require greater concern for safety.
