Four abandoned mines. Mine car rails still protrude from the collapsed shafts, and one still has a partial (not enterable) shaft. No structures remain except for cabin foundation rubble. Steep in places, short but climbs rapidly. Good shoes are a must, and trail finding skills would prove to be a big benefit. The trail is overgrown and a little tricky to navigate at times. Stick to the creek, and you shouldn't have much difficulty finding it when it reappears. Not suggested for small children. One you reach the first mine tailings, to reach the other three are on the other side of the creek, and will require some bush whacking (though they aren't far!) to reach.

Not a particularly beautiful trail but once you get to the top there are gorgeous views all around. It is difficult to follow in spots (more so uphill than downhill) and is quite steep.

Mostly covered trail with sections that are nearly overgrown. Trail is not well marked. It is uphill all the way there and can be strenuous in sections. My activity tracker measured it as 1.7 miles each way. Ran into a small rattle snake on the way down. Beautiful, peaceful hike.

We got kinda lost a couple times on the way back, the trail isn't very clearly marked the whole way. Not a big deal but we had to navigate through some thick brush. Has some very nice views.
