Beautiful moderate hike. We started and finished on the Cobre Ridge Loop Trail however we only wanted to hike about 5.5 miles so we took a short cut using marked dirt roads that are throughout area. The view of Montana peak and the valley to the west were amazing. We saw several old mines, the old dam and and numerous white tail deer. We did not see other people. Ruby road is not paved and there are some areas that are a little rough getting to the "trail head" - which is an even rougher dirt road.
