Following the 1850's journal entries of the original miner, the many placards on the Union Mine Interpretive Trail guide the hiker through the various sites and seasons of the mine's history. The forest around this trail is very old and undisturbed, and makes for a beautiful hike. You will see virgin Hemlock and Sugar Maples on this hike as well.

Trail was very beautiful! Short and sweet! Personally, I would rate the trail as easy. We experienced a bit of mud, so you may want some good shoes!

Interesting interpretive trail that teaches you about the copper mining that occurred in the area in the 1800's. Beautiful well marked trail following a river.
