Great place to visit. Lots of things to see that range from beautiful scenic views to old buildings that are slowly becoming lost to time. Lots of wildlife in the area. Elk and mule deer are very common in the higher parts of the trail. Only draw back is that their are a lot of vacation homes a little ways down the road. If you are planning on driving threw the area with the old mining facilities, I would strongly recommend 4wd. It's a gravel road with a extremely steep incline.
