Trail that starts in a very sandy wash basin for first .6 miles slight incline. Then trail winds in and out of the hills. All ascent to the mine summit. It was an ok hike. Great views the entire hike which was awesom.
Three stars because it was just ok.
Rated hard and I would say it was more considered moderate

The summit was cool seeing the mining tools left.

Brought plenty of water and still used it all. 3L bladder plus 32 oz juice. Great spot to enjoy a snack at summit.
