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.
