A nice creekside hike to a meadow and old miners cabin This pretty hike follows Cherry Creek for a ways, then a tributary to a pleasant meadow, where the remains of a miners log cabin still exist. The trail follows the creek, (good fishing) upstream through a variety of trees, wildlife, and views, then turns into a heavy pine forest a short distance to the meadow. Several loops can be made from this hike. The old mine shaft can still be visited about a mile further up this canyon, although bushwhacking is required after a short distance.
