If anyone wants to take on this challenge I would suggest trailing the loop backwards and once at the mine come back the same way. The loop is absolutely not traveled on often and barley even exists. I’ve hiked the full loop before and at places it can be very dangerous where your footing is. Much easier to travel the opposite way up to the mine. Be aware there are still many steep drops and extremely steep switch backs still.
