Make sure you get the map at the ranger station to make this hike more interesting. The path was very thin in places, which can make it harder to walk with younger kids.

Without an interpretive guide to tell you what you're looking at at the numerically marked points of interest, this is just a nice little walk in the woods. Nice spring day. Didn't see another person.

Not a difficult hike but walking through some history is great

Short trail, but a beautiful area to walk through. Interesting history that shows in the trails geography. A lot of poison oak, I would recommend not going when it is poison oak season.

Great little hike ~ easy to navigate and enjoyable. My kids wanted to walk it again right away! Wear rain boots during wet weather ~ natural springs on the path.

The Gin Lin Mining Trail featured here is NOT part of the Britt trail system. It is located up Upper Applegate Road, about 1/2 mile past McKee Bridge turn right on Palmer Creek Rd. The trailhead is next to the abandoned Flumet Campground. Its an interesting trail through a mined out area. Watch for poison oak and rattlesnakes.

Part of the trails above the Britt Fest area. Nice easy walk. Feels like a walk in a park sometimes. Well marked with plenty of informative signs. More of a neighborhood exercise path than a real "hike", but we enjoyed it.
