From the upper parking lot at the pond, cross the footbridge over Farmington Creek. Follow the switchbacks up a short hill and branch right on a trail that parallels the creek for a half mile to an old abandoned silver mine. A half mile farther up the canyon, you will reach a trail junction that provides access to the Francis Peak Trail (#22.4), or continue east about another half mile to reach section #11.1. This is where the pavement on the canyon road ends. There is a small parking lot at the switchback.
