Independence Mine Trail is a 0.5 mile out and back trail located near Palmer, Alaska and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is best used from June until September.
great history to view
My team of two got into some hairy stuff as we blazed off the trail in hopes of making it to the peek...the weather rolled in as we made our way over snow covered boulders, searching for our footing...straddling and crawling over all sizes of rock! Great time...will remember forever!
This was really a beautiful place! When we went there, it was raining, but still we had a great time hiking there. I couldn't stop taking pictures!! If you have time, take a tour. It's only $6 per person, and really informative! They take you inside of the buildings, and tell you how they lived, who lived there. It's worth $6 and the time (one hour).
