Highline Trail is nearly 15 miles from east to west as it follows contour lines from 7600 feet to about 7000 feet in elevation. The vegetation remains constant with ponderosa pine predominating. As the trail winds west, the pine trees thin out and juniper and oak brush become more numerous. Big game animals are indigenous to the entire area as well as smaller mammals and many species of birds including wild turkeys. Some wildflowers are in bloom most of the year and cattle graze the hillsides, emphasizing the multiple-use concept of our forests.
