Overview

Middle Fork Canyon is a trip back in time to the mining days of the late 1800s. This short trail boasts four different known gold, silver, and copper mines abandoned 140 years ago. Several dilapidated, roofless log cabins from that era still exist for you to explore while taking this easy 4x4 trail. Today, excellent camping along the canyon road with the sounds of the rippling waters from the small river can be a cornerstone to a peaceful weekend.
