What a beautiful hike. The creek was flowing thanks to a recent snow, and we were serenaded by gurgling water the entire way. The trail was nice, rocky in spots but easy to follow. Highly recommend this hike.

One of my most favorite spots. It is amazing! Bring sunscreen!

This trail is more like 7.5 miles in and back, and a bit more if you clamber up the tailings and get to the mine head. Watch your step though. It can be very slippery. That aside, it's a great trail through some fairly unique rockscapes. First mile or so is very gradual, with great views as the gulch starts to close in around you. After that it's a steadily increasing uphill until the bottom of the ore chute, which is a sight to see. Last few hundred feet, as I said above, are very steep and treacherous, probably should avoid if you have a dog, but if you do go up, keep a sharp eye for the old dugout cabin. Great views of the valley below, and interesting remnants of a fascinating former world.
