We went searching for Wildflowers on the Pine River Trail in Vallecito Co this week. This was our first hike in the Weminuche Wilderness and it did not disappoint. The Pine River Trail goes to Emerald Lake or the Weminuche Pass, most notably. Both of those hikes are 20+ miles, so if you’re looking for a day hike, you can just do an out and back, as far as you like and then turn around. The trail is beautiful in both directions, you can’t go wrong!
