Likely In-Season!
Pine Flat Trail #165 was originally a livestock service trail connecting two line cabins. The vegetation consists of scattered stands of ponderosa and pinyon pine, juniper, and thickets of chaparral. There are some riparian deciduous trees in Beehouse Canyon, which offer welcome shade during the hot summer months. The views along this trail are generally to the west and they are rather impressive where the trail follows the rim of the canyon that overlooks Sycamore Creek.

The terrain traversed by the Pine Flat Trail #165 is very rocky and erodes easily. The portions of the trail that lie within Beehouse Canyon may be particularly rough, especially for travelers on horseback.

From its junction with TR #159, the trail climbs steeply to the south and then southwest for 1 mile in Beehouse Canyon. The portions of the trail that lie within Beehouse Canyon are particularly rough at this time. The area is very rocky and erodes easily. Once out of the canyon, the trail turns almost due south for another 2 miles to its junction with TR #159.
