This was a wonderful hike! A little bit of everything.
Awesome spot. Easy to follow trails with some steep spots to keep it fun and challenging. Lots of fallen leaves made the trail a bit tough in spots as you can really start to slide, but hiking poles really help with this. Cool historical spots with lots of informational placards explaining the mining operation and donkey trail. Bat cages were really cool too. We will definitely return.
For the most part it was moderate, however, the mine loop was completely flat. Other than that there was a nice mix on incline and I was able to do it in sneakers. Hardly saw anyone on the trail.
Beautiful hike! Lots of rock which can make it steep in some parts, but it was a very dynamic hike!
awesome place! if you like historical sites along with a nice 3.5 miles hike this is for you! had a blast just checking out the small caves and the old factory sites
good bits of history, somewhat rocky trails. has a good feeling of being away from civilization. will do this one again.
Very cool trail
Great place. Lots of interesting history if your into that. Trails were challenging at points, but good exercise. Lots of bugs, so bring spray. I also enjoyed how they try to preserve bats and their habitat. All around good stuff!
