We were disappointed to find that the mine had recently been gated off completely. Still, the hike was well worth our time. Much of the hike followed a narrow canyon and felt quite secluded for being so close to the city. This is definitely one of the better getaways in the area.

Beautiful hike, very green and fairy tale like with creeks and small waterfalls. The trail will disappear on you and your Wifi will not work-however there are signs but you still may lose your way a bit. A bit of rock climbing and you will be fine. In and out of shade, lots of shade though, many broken trees and trail volunteers were working on that today July 2, 2017. Hike on!

We were there on June 9 and saw two guys sealing the entrance to both mines. Forest Service decided to shut them down because of the accidents occurred every year. No more getting into the mines!

Great.. minus the attack of bees right before the mine itself. Careful people, especially if allergic. There's a nest of them right before you get to the mine (it's at the part where there is 3 unmarked trails to choose from right before you hit the climb down to the mine). We were going to see where one of the trails lead you, but got stung.. and my daughter and other people actually saw the big nest in the tree. And now the mine is gated off.. you are not able to go in.

Peaceful going up along the creek and coming back down sunset trail. My dogs had a blast but they were tiered at the end.
