Trail Information


Definitely a worthwhile spur off of Barlow Canyon this road leads to one of the best mines in the area. The road up is really nice, although only half a mile long. Once you are at the top of the trail, there is a mine back and to the left in the rock hill. You can see where the old entrance used to be, an open gated entrance, and a grate over another shaft. If you venture the other direction from the road, you will see some tailings from that mine.

I like this trail. Cool snow trail, currently the trail is 75 percent snow and prob get 7-8 inch depth. Due to snow I didn't venture out to see the mines , but beautiful area. Fullsize tundra made it. Video here , Barlow canyon is about the 1:09 mark to the 9:40 mark

Worth checking out. The mine is a nice cool place to take a break. Was like 40degrees cooler out of the sun on a 100 degree day.

This is a neat little spur to take. Too bad everything is closed off! Exploring these mines would be quite incredible.
