Short, steep hike up to a boarded off mine. The scenery makes this hike worth it, though.

Short trail with nice scenery. Bushwaked our own trail up to the left of the mine till we reached a cliff where we heard water, but couldn't see it. Had a great time. Lots of stairs. Nice side hike.

A good side hike when you're returning to your car.
Quite steep, nice big trees, but not a lot to see of the mine.

First off, this is near Carbonado, WA. This hike is kid friendly. You basically walk the closed road from the carbon river ranger station to the cutoff (on the right) for the old mine. It's a moderately steep and short trail to the top where the mine is boarded off but it allows you to take some cool pictures with heavily overgrown forest. If you're short on time, then this small hike may be for you.
