I haven't thoroughly explored this trail yet but I just wanted to give a description of where this is located since I took so long trying to find it, only to happen upon it by planning a different adventure instead. This trail is located at Hatchers Pass, up at Independence Mine. If you walk up where the waterfall is, where the train cars are located, you will find the sign and trail. I plan to go back and thoroughly explore, now that I know where this trail is located.

We just did this trail and the road was closed which gives you an additional couple of miles to walk in snow. It was surprisingly busy for being closed. We saw another 30 people. Which makes me scared to think of how busy this might be when the mill is open to the public. The mill has a lot of fascinating historical information. The destination we used in our alltrails app is not the correct one for getting here unfortunately so we drove an extra half hour that we didn't need to. Make sure you cross reference the location for this hike.

I loved this trail !! You can hike around tundra (try not to step on it), and take a close look at the mill. The scenery was beautiful, so i took almost 300 pictures..couldn't help it! It's definitely worth the travel.
