There's no trail marker. You hike up what appears to be an atv trail or suv road adjacent to a creek. The trail is just past the camping sites that are at the end of the paved road and beginning of the dirt road. It's a pretty hike; gets kinda steep at times though. You pass old mining stuff and water lines buried here and there. We took a branch in the road up by an old rusting steel stove and looped through one of the prettiest quaking aspen forests I've ever seen. That was our favorite part of the hike. The trees in those groves are monstrous, majestic, almost a reverent feel in some of it; -clean trunks, soooo tall, amazing!!! Definitely will go back. I've included on my recording of the hike where we went. Love this hike! Our puppy loved it too! Be aware of cows grazing at large in the area. I think our dog thought they were cute and cuddly and wanted to go meet them, but we didn't let her. :)

Perfect for families. Not difficult, and beautiful.

My only complaint would be there are not enough cows.

Hike is mostly uphill. Beautiful view, wild flowers and butterflies everywhere. Takes a while before you reach water. Nice Creek to cool off in and for the kids to play in.

Ton of cows. Smelt bad and was chasing cattle the whole hike.

fun area with lots to explore. any direction you go in you find mines, just follow the water. I think most of these pictures were taken on the back side of the canyon. The cows have made it hard to distinguish what is a trail and what isn't. just follow the atv trail till (past the 2 valve wheels sticking out of the ground) to the mine. from these head south east through the basin. just follow all the trees with initials carved in them. They will take you to a saddle where it the trail will fork. From there you can see Eagle Mountain. You can hit some small peaks to the east or go down to the valley below or hit the high peaks to the west. In 1 afternoon we went by 7 mines, 1 mine cart and I believe their are more. Good luck and have fun. Also just passed the turn around ( where their is a trail to hike if you don't want to use the same trail as the atv's) just before the atv trail really gets rough the is a path outlined with rock to you left. If you take that, it will lead to the top where middle, becomes Butterfield. Their is a step 10ish climb that someone has put ropes for you to use. after that is a pretty light hike. you pass the trucks that rolled down the canyon or what ever but that's about it beside a nice scenery. I'm not much for writing and grammar, sorry but I hope this helps.

Don't know if we where in the right canyon, didn't see any signs. Saw a lot of ATV and cows.

Its a nice hike. Plenty of shade, it gets open and rocky in the end. Lake is beautiful but we expected more.
