The Pine Mountain Trail, located in FDR State Park, is open to hikers any time the park is open. You do not have to be a Pine Mountain Trail Association member to hike on the trail, nor do you have to pay to hike on the trail. The only fee one must pay is the $3.00 Daily Use Fee (parking permit). The Pine Mountain Trail offers clear crisp views of distant ridges in winter, with occasional snowfall, to the lush greens of summer ferns and foliage of lowland flora. Wildflowers are abundant and spring brings flowering dogwood, native azalea, mountain laurel and rhododendron. Fall brings bright and beautiful colors, changing from day to day.
