A great hike. Good trail and enough ups and downs to make fun. Just a note...it's very easy to miss the mine. The mine is actually below the tailings in the trees....worth the the trip.

What a great afternoon hike. Did not see very many hikers and only a few bikers. Parts of the trail could best be described as "rolling" meaning there are ups and downs and so you get a great variety. Views are fantastic and there is a cool old mine you can peak down into. Would recommend for all skill levels just be sure to take lots of water as there isn't much shade or relief from the sun!

It was a cool trail. A few old mine entrances to peer into but you can't enter them. Not very challenging but great views.

This is a very scenic hike that connects to several other trails for longer hiking options. Most people miss the mine as they think the tailings are the mine. The mine is in a wooded canyon at the end of trail. People remove the cairns to keep it secret. There are petroglyphs just beyond the mine entrance.

Easy family friendly trail. Fun to take the service road down to climb to the mine.
