Beautiful and easy hike worth doing for anyone visiting Colorado.
Took as 3 hours round trip and towards the end of September it was spectacular-the colors were gorgeous although not full of aspens, the broken down cabins and mining areas were fascinating, not a hard hike and SO worthwhile.
Hiked this trail 9/1016. We did the loop and the back side was just as senior but completely different. great hike and beautiful views.
walk is on a road which takes points off. Beautiful views.
Beautiful scenery and neat old buildings to explore!!
Beautiful 360 views at the top! Walk up to Clinton trail and loop all the way on two trails. Old log cabin mining town.
Fantastic views. Went right at the boston mines and from there you can see the mayflower gulch, ampitheater, and clinton reserve.
Amazing views. Recommend hiking up to the ridge in the west up the jeep trail. Easy parking and not near Breckinridge. Go 6 miles south on 91 at copper mnt exit.
Nice hike with great views. Not "near Breckenridge" as the description states. Head to Copper and go five miles past it on road to Leadville.
A beautiful hike for all ages. We were a group ranging in ages from 76 down to 14 and everyone had a wonderful hike. The road is easy to navigate with it's gentle uphill path. .A magnificent vista greets everyone a t the end of the road. Some of us stopped for lunch in the rocks above the cabin while some more adventurous, hiked up to the surrounding mountains. A very enjoyable day to be sure. We arrived at the trailhead parking lot at about 10:30 and returned at 2:15 .
Beautiful place, the initial slope to the cabin was easy. We did the loop to the old mine then up the other ridge. We strayed off the path and climbed a pretty steep slope so I could get to the ridge with snow. It was over 6 feet deep in August. Gorgeous views, beautiful wild flowers and cool old cabins to explore. We got pretty close to a muskrat (?), sunning on the rocks. All in all we hiked 6.5 miles.
Gorgeous views, wildflowers and mining ruins. We got there early and as a bonus we had the trail to ourselves for the morning until about 9:30. Great to spend time in our beautiful Colorado mountains without hoards of people. Trail was not hard at all.
One of our favorites and we live in Colorado! Awesome wildflowers, old mining ruins and beautiful views everywhere!! We are older & have done this hike every year. We had lunch at the top & just enjoyed a perfect place.
We LOVED this hike - gorgeous views of the amphitheater and some of the best wildflowers ever! We tried hiking up the steep rocky/talus face toward Mt. Fletcher after the beautiful 360 degree viewpoint up top of Gold Hill, but lost the trail halfway up and got tired of using our hands to navigate the rocks. Turned around at about 12,300 ft. Loved the wild columbines growing there in the rocks, however!
