I've driven past the Ballentine trailhead many times and was afraid the scenery would be stark. I've recently read up on the overall trail and decided to take a peak. It was getting ready to storm, so we only ventured around the Pine Creek Loop. There were some pretty amazing views and not bad on solitude. I hiked from the North end around to the intersection with Ballantine trail and hiked the South route heading back to parking. This is not a good hike for a dog... lots of cactus!
