We loved this trail! A fairly steep combination of slope, stairs, and rocky path takes you down to the first level of Kaymoor. Here you can explore buildings. A very long and winding staircase takes you down to the bottom level where the mining activity occurred. We were pressed for time and didn't go to the bottom. Warning, it is quite a lot of stairs to get down (and back up!) there! Well worth it.

Been here twice. First time with some friends and the second with my mom. Easy trail but still a pretty good hike. Watch out for snakes in the summer!

The view is super pretty. Did not like that to complete the loop you have to walk on the road. Few cool ladders for climbing access.

Pretty steep area at the top of the 800 steps is more interesting than everything at the bottom. The bottoms all fenced off.

Enjoyed the trail. Short, but moderately hard. Keep going to river when trail ends. It's not too much further. Steep climb down and back up from river then the stairs! I slipped about 3 times climbing back up from the river. I would not recommend dogs on this trail due to cliffs and stairs. Waterfall was dry. Great time of year to go, not a lot of traffic. Cool mine ruins. Careful - I got lost for a few minutes because I climbed higher than the ruins, then I could not see them over the rocks. I loved the trail.
