Moderate to difficult 2.5 mile out and back. Depending on the time of year, you may cross water several times, so make sure to have appropriate footwear. The trail is overgrown and unmarked, so it may be a little tricky to navigate at times. Stick to the creek; you shouldn't have much difficulty finding it when it reappears. Once you reach the first mine tailings, you'll have to do some bushwhacking to reach the other three on the other side of the creek

I honestly did not enjoy this hike. It was very overgrown, and keeping on the trail was pretty difficult at times. I also made the mistake of wearing shorts (my fault). If the trail was maintained a little bit better then I would definitely try again.

This hike was beautiful and had great views of the neighboring mountains. A lot of walking through the stream and figuring out where to go. But overall fun and good hike!

Not your grandma’s hike! My favorite hike this year due to being so technical and challenging. Includes climbing over and under trees, hanging onto roots, jumping streams, getting lost a few times due to the trail being overgrown and run-off. Didn’t make the mine due to getting a late start and light restrictions but it was so fun, will be back again.

Easy to moderate trail made much more difficult due to being very overgrown (in April) and it had many river crossings, in some sections there were multiple streams, one of which was running down the trail, snow free, until top, mine covered in Snow

totally overgrown and steep, feet wet from creek crossing. I like Lake Mary and silver lake soooo much more!

This is definitely a bush wack situation. The trail is pretty hard to follow as you get towards the top. Wear pants! Absolutely no traffic though which is nice. Very pretty though there is a lot of water flowing currently.
