Loved this hike, I would recommend starting at the firebreak road. If you start at the firebreak road it will save you a ton of time and energy.

we just got done hiking this trail. Access to the fire road was blocked due to construction, it appears new houses are going in. The hike from the road up to the fire road was very steep. It was still a good hike. You are out in the sun most if the time, so take lots of water! We took our 12 and 8 year olds with us and they did just fine. The 8 year old usually complains, but she was a trooper the whole way.

fairly easy trail there is construction so the trail head is a little wonky to get to

Fun hike. The kids loved the mine. It was a bit wet inside the mine.

Trail is pretty steep in some parts but the mine is definitely worth it!

We hiked up the north end and hiked down the south end. The north end was a bit shadier and had more variety than the simple switchbacks on the south end. I had myself and husband and 4 kids ages 9, 7, 3, 2. The two littles had to be carried most of the way and got tired. The older too were a little tired but did fine with breaks. some parts are kind of steep (maybe it just felt steep whilst carrying a child). The mine was fantastic. Nice and cool after being in the hot sun. We brought head lamps and inflatable solar balls which worked perfect. Our cell phones were definitely not bright enough. Mine had water in many places when we went so watch your step, some a ankle deep puddles. All in all kids loved it-the mine made it worth the heat and whining. The view was pretty amazing too.

We did this in the afternoon--not enough shade for an afternoon hike. We enjoyed the mine and the view from Flag Rock.

Nice hike. Steeper at the beginning and end. A nice bench waits for you at the half-way point. Bring flashlights or headlamps for the mine... you phone will not be bright enough. Bring water for each person and a snack, especially with kids.

We parked on the fire road. You'll need an SUV or Truck to get there. The signs say the gate is closed, but I never saw that. When you turn onto the fire road, the trailhead is 1.4 miles from there, with places to park.
