HikingGreat!No shade

The Sallie Barber portion of the trail is essentially just walking at a slight incline on a gravel road up to an abandoned mine. Didn’t have much shade and no real views until you reach the mine. We ended up going on the “Trail of Tears” near the mine to extend the hike and really enjoyed this part. Totally shaded and pretty flat. We just turned around before reaching a real focal point but still really enjoyed it - great for a first day hike to get acclimated. We also brought our dog and she loved it!

Easy morning hike. Perfect for dogs and/or kids with a slight gradual ascend.

HikingGreat!

The hike is on an old mining road with a lot of shade and not too much to see, it was well worth it when we got to the top and found the old and abandoned mining site. Our son spent almost an hour playing around the area and collecting the little pieces of whatever type of metal remained as they shimmered in the sunshine. Very interesting and a great family excursion. Not the most beautiful hike in the area but interesting, historic, and fun!

Easy hike, pretty secluded. No views until the end at the mine. Good for a warm up on your first day adjusting to Altitude.

HikingGreat!

Pretty trail in the trees on an old road. Gentle consistent incline to the top. I live at about 200' above sea level, moderately fit & moderately aged, I was able to keep an easy walking pace going up. Very pretty views at the top AND you can peer down the 365' mine shaft. Good for families of varied ages, good for bikes.

Easy trail but a slight incline the whole way to the mine. Pretty uneventful hike but there was a nice creek along slide most of the path! We didn’t experience a lot of bugs but saw a lot of birds by the mine! The walk down was a lot more enjoyable. We preferred blue lakes and lily pad trail to this hike.

Nice hike. We are beginners and it was perfect. Great combo of hikers and bikes. Gravel road up to the top. Opens to beautiful views and old mine. Lots of families very popular. Many wearing masks as we hiked.

Parked at trailhead. Hike is up an old mine road. We cut through an unmarked trail about halfway down to the lower part of Turks trail. Several bikes on trail.

Super family friendly hike! Our kids enjoyed exploring the mine and collecting “gold”. The 3 miles round trip from our parking spot was the perfect distance for our 6 year old. Not very crowded and great views along the way!

My family really enjoyed this trail. We aren’t experienced hikers, and this was an easy trail with tons of trees. It is a fairly flat path. There were a decent amount of bikers that passed us. We went around 10:30 am on a Thursday morning, and it wasn’t crowded at all. The first half of the hike was pretty shaded, but by the time we turned around the head back it was mostly in the sun. The trailhead was a bit tricky to find. However we asked a local we passed, and he directed us to where it began. Cool mine at the top with some interesting history. Very different than other hikes we had done!

This is a great, easy, first day at altitude trail. We did this on July 3. Wide and expect a lot of mountain bikers. The mime is really interesting and fairly well preserved. You can continue on past the mine to add on if you want to. Easy to find trail head and very scenic.

Great trail. We’re in Breckinridge with our 10 month old, so we’re not hitting long/ hard trials. This was super easy, great time, and beautiful views. Also loved how secluded it was.

Another great easy trail for kids or someone with a sprained ankle (like me!). A couple water features and then an interesting mine shaft and great view at the top. With my gimp ankle it took us about 35 mins to get to the top.

Not over crowded but did pass some people hiking and biking on way up and back. Easy hike for kids. No shade particularly on trail. Creek runs next to trail for most of the way up. Very dog friendly. Old mine at top. Out and back trail if you are planning to do only the Sallie Barber Trail.

Great family hike with slow incline to the mine. Small stream along runs along trail most of way. Great views along the way and at the top. The mine has wonderful historic overviews and well preserved equipment.

Pretty easy trail overall and if you like mines there's a cool one up at the top. Tennis shoe friendly and easy for kids. Not a lot of shade but the first half goes alongside a small streak which was super fun to listen to.

Nice little hike. Old mining road leads the way, so well worn path all the way. Great weather today. Able to cool off by dipping bandanas in the stream that runs along the route.

Great trail. Scenic views with a nice surprise at the end. Perfect for families. Did not spot much wildlife, but plenty of beautiful running water and trees.
