Pretty hike we've done a couple of times. Follows an old mine road up the valley to a pass that crosses into the Lincoln Creek valley and ghost town Ruby. Saw a herd of elk on one of our hikes there. Long, rutted 4 wheel drive road to the trailhead (a couple stream crossings, but not a narrow road nor near drop offs.
