Pinyon Pine Loop Trail Map - in progress
Hiking Around Las Vegas, Mount Charleston Area, Lee Canyon

The Pinyon Pine Loop Trail is a 8.5-mile loop that starts from the Sawmill Trailhead along Lee Canyon Road and runs out to the north-northeast. I've not hiked this trail between Waypoints 40 and 48, but the map is accurate (USFS maps confirmed using aerial photos) except in the area approaching Waypoint 48 where the trail is not clear on aerial photos. Waypoints 41 through 47 were chosen for strategic directions at places where the trail is visible on aerial photos.

Map based on USGS 7.5 minute topo map, which may have red grid lines and various numbers. North is at the top. Grid is UTM NAD27 CONUS. Wilderness Areas (boundaries solid green, fill light green) based on BLM data.
