Description

From the trailhead, cross the Sapello River and continue up the trail between the fenced private land to either side. The trail will begin to switchback up the hillside leveling out occassionally along plateaus. The trail enters the open meadows of Lone Pine Mesa. The original Lone Pine Tree can be seen surrounded by a crop of new Bristlecone Pine seedlings threatening to make the namesake obsolete. The trail intersects with Hermit's Peak Trail 223 along the top of the ridge. About 50 yards to the northwest is the trail that drops down to Aspen Spring. This spring, located about a half mile down the trail, is a small cattle trough with a metal pipe dripping water in from the ground above. Lone Pine Mesa Trail 214 continues south and west, dropping quickly down to Beaver Creek and the intersection with El Porvenir Canyon Trail 247. This grassy area is used heavily for grazing and encounters with cattle are likely.
