Beautiful views today. More snow on this hike than we expected. Layer up as the majority of the hike you are in the shade. Sun drenched at the top though. We want to come back and see it in the summer

Beautiful waterfall marks a halfway marker! The old mine evokes appreciation for older mining times in Breckenridge.

We hiked this trail 2 days ago when visiting Breckenridge for the day. We loved it! It's on an incline the whole way there but leads to a beautiful view. We kept going up Nightmare on Baldy trail. We didn't complete that trail as it was getting late, so we went back down Sallie Barber the trail. if you're looking for a quick hike I'd recommend this one!

Visited on a Sunday afternoon mid-July. Was not too crowded and only a few mountain bikers. Little to no dog poop as suggested in other reviews, but it is essentially just an exposed dirt road so definitely not the most exciting trail. The kids get bored quickly with nothing but road ahead.

We hiked the trail in Feb on packed snow. Nice trail! We took Nightmare on Baldy up from the mine. Beautiful! Lots of fun looking connector trails for future hikes.

Easy short hike good for beginners or people visiting from out of town. The mine site at the top was neat to look at and great views from the top as well.

A nice trail. More of a dirt road. But at the top are a bunch of trailheads. We did a couple of them and they were really nice. Especially True Romance.

We took four kids on this hike and it was perfect for a family hike. A gradual incline with a stream most of the way up. Rewarded at the top with the historic mine and amazing views. A great way to spend the morning!

trail was just an old road with trees on both sides...wary too many mountain bikers barreling down too fast

Great hike. Wide, easy path that climbs uphill a a noticeable but not too difficult rate. AllTrails suggested this hike would take three hours. Nonsense. We were up and back in one hour.

This was cool. I went semi-randomly not really knowing what to expect. First hike in CO for myself and my 9 yr old lab mix. We got tired and were almost going to give up before getting to the Sallie Barber Mine but finally made it. The next day we came back with a friend and a puppy and more than doubled the hike by continuing past the mine and making a loop that came out on French Gulch gravel road. There were a couple isolated points where the entire trail was snow covered but the dogs loved it. Only complaint is that at the very beginning of the trail there is quite a lot of dog poo. I think a couple signs telling owners to pick up, or at least move into the trees, dog waste off the trail would be great.

Went in early May. Wish we would have had snowshoes. We were with 2 small children, so between the snow and the kids, it didn't feel like an "easy" hike.
