Join us for a Backcountry Women Adventure Women hike on Pine Point Rapids Trail.
The first loop of Pine Point Rapids includes gentle ups and downs over rock, boardwalks, and roots. The second loop of Pine Point includes more moderate climbs and steeper descents over similar terrain. The second loop is more challenging than the first. Expect slippery conditions on both loops if there has been recent precipitation. We will enjoy lunch at the rapids after completing the second loop.
