Steins Pillar Trail (#837)
This beautiful trail can be accessed at the Steins Pillar Trailhead. It slowly climbs through old growth forest, flower-filled mountain meadows, and rocky ridges. The trail reaches its final destination at the base of Steins Pillar, a 350-foot monolith of welded tuff, deposited during the collapse of the Wilcat Caldera, around 40 million years ago. The pillar can also be seen from a viewing area along Mill Creek Road.
This trail is not a loop. You will return to the trailhead by the same route you entered.
