Description
Waypoints (1)

As of May 2020, the gates are closed to the trailhead, which adds about 1.5 miles to your hike. This is a nice little detour if you're on the way down from Nightmare on Baldy. You can just visit True Romance Mine and curve around it. The trail is rough for a little bit but soon settles down and connects back up with the Sally Barber Mine Trail a bit downhill from the mine.

The gates at the intersection of Sallie Barber Rd & Alphabet Ln are still closed, so it's an extra 1.5 miles of hiking to the trailhead listed here (each way). The road/trail to the summer trailhead is still very snowy -- glad I had waterproof boots and gaiters, although snowshoes may have even been nice in spots, especially after arriving at the mine/summer trailhead (where I turned around because the trail listed here was still far too snowy for boots). Even on the road I did some thigh-high postholing. Some nice views along the road (albeit mostly with power lines in the way), and the mine was interesting.

great ski however the gates are close on Sallie for the winter so you have a mile and a half before you get to the trail head.
