Miners Creek is an easy, dead-end gravel road. The trail begins at Highway 149 and travels north to the Miners Creek Trailhead, a hiking, equestrian, and single-track only trail. On the way to the large parking area, you pass several old mining structures and make your way through sections of private property. Around 2.5 miles in, the trail enters Rio Grand National Forest with a half dozen campsites that vary in size and accessibility. Some sites are large, flat, and grassy, suitable for groups or large trailers and RVs, while other sites are tucked into the trees next to the creek and only suitable for tents and vehicle camping. Camping is not allowed at the trailhead parking area. The road is hard-packed gravel and multiple vehicles wide the entire way, making it suitable for any vehicle.
