Not a difficult hike but walking through some history is great
Short trail, but a beautiful area to walk through. Interesting history that shows in the trails geography. A lot of poison oak, I would recommend not going when it is poison oak season.
Great little hike ~ easy to navigate and enjoyable. My kids wanted to walk it again right away! Wear rain boots during wet weather ~ natural springs on the path.
The Gin Lin Mining Trail featured here is NOT part of the Britt trail system. It is located up Upper Applegate Road, about 1/2 mile past McKee Bridge turn right on Palmer Creek Rd. The trailhead is next to the abandoned Flumet Campground. Its an interesting trail through a mined out area. Watch for poison oak and rattlesnakes.
Part of the trails above the Britt Fest area. Nice easy walk. Feels like a walk in a park sometimes. Well marked with plenty of informative signs. More of a neighborhood exercise path than a real "hike", but we enjoyed it.
