Beautiful hike among aspen forest (note to come back in fall). Quite a bit of beetle kill unfortunately as well. The mine itself is underwhelming but the views of meadows and mountain peaks is well worth it. A few small creek crossings as well which our pup took advantage of to get a drink.
(Likely a 4-Star rating in fall)

Lots of dead fall along the trail and beetle kill in the forest. The mine was anticlimactic. We did see a bear about .5 miles from the top which was exciting. The drive to the trailhead is a little rough too.
