Trail Information


Barlow Canyon offers the best old mines and prospects in the area. The trail passes the Scranton Mine, which produced silver, lead, and zinc. If you are willing to do a little hiking, there are a lot of interesting historical artifacts to see. Combine this with Miners Canyon, The View, and the Barlow Canyon Mines spur for a good day of mining ruins and views.

Neat mines along the route & some pinstriping likely. Trail was only worth 2-3 stars, but the mines along the way and the view at the top gave it an extra star or two. Final 0.1mi incline might be tough/dangerous when wet.

This is a cool area to explore. The trails aren't too difficult so they can get boring in that regard, but there is some cool history out here.
