Beautiful and thickly wooded, but I would NOT rate this as easy. Very rocky and straight up hill the whole time.

I did this hike to the mine on crutches with a torn medial meniscus in my right knee, so for me it was one of the most difficult but yet rewarding hikes I've been on. Fellow hikers were cheering me on and it was much appreciated. The view of the water cascading down the stream at the mine site was worth the 3 days of agony my palms and underarms felt. Great hike for the kids and entire family.

We had the intention of doing Estes Cone, but we were pretty new to mountain hiking and this was our second hike of the day. By the time we reached Storm Pass, we decided to do the Cone on another trip when we were fresher. What we did do was a pleasant hike with forest, meadow, mountain views, and, of course, the mine which we spent time wondering around.

Nice hike with the kids. Snow-covered past the first half mile; micro spikes would have been helpful, but it was fine with hiking shoes. Nice to see a different part of the Longs Peak trail.

This was a beautiful hike; we hiked in mid-August last summer and it took just a bit over two hours with plenty of down time poking around near the actual entrance to the mine.

Beautiful Hike with at least an inch of fresh snow on the ground, easy hike with some great peaks of the mountains and a little creek rite by the Mine.
