Hero: Mineral Point Townsite
small-sr Icon

Mineral Point Townsite, a short loop just off Mineral Creek, is filled with history. The trail climbs up to remnants of the San Juan Chief and British Queen Mines. The entire area was once a mining hotbed with as many as ten operating mines. At least one spacious campsite is available on this trail and can be accessed by stock 4WD vehicles.
