Trail Information

Highlights

In the 1870s, the little town of Homansville was just starting up. The Tintic Mining District started booming with all of the silver and other minerals being mined. Throughout the 1870s, '80s, and 90's the mines in this area produced enough profit to be considered the second-largest mining district in the state of Utah and in the top 25 in the nation. Prior to the 1900s, the town was abandoned. Today, you can still see remains of very few buildings. The trail pulls you from Highway 6 just north of Eureka and allows you to take a mild drive through the Tintic Mountains up to Allen's Ranch. Mines are rich in the area and you can often see tailings along the hillside. With all of the spurs offered in the area, it's hard to spend just a short day up here.

If you go after it snows, that makes this and the surrounding trails really nice. Easy exploring

Nice day out exploring the Tintic Mountains. Didn't see a single soul all day. Still, just a plain dusty road but finally got to explore Silver Dollar Mine just off of this trail which was cool.

Just an easy road that gives you access to the Tintic Mountains. Nothing special. Could be fun after some snow.
