|Pine Hills Grinder
This is an Awesome loop. The first climb is roughly 3.5 miles long and takes you from 380ft to 850ft. Once at the top you have about 4 mile on a ridge that overlooks th Mississippi River, with arguably the most breath taking views found anywhere. From that point you meander by Alto Pass and Bald Knob Cross. This loop does not go to Bald Knob you can easily add it to the loop and reach over 1,000ft above sea level.
