The Mine to Market Trail, 4W305, follows an old turn-of-the-century mining road used to get into the upper reaches of the surrounding mountains. Nine switchbacks climb steeply up the mountain. This trail has a caretaker who owns a cabin at the beginning of this trail. His family made a mining claim before the turn of the century, and by continually reapplying for the claim, he can keep his family cabin. He is responsible for keeping this trail open and has made continuous improvements. The cabin is at Waypoint 3. If you are traveling on a weekend, beep your horn as you pass by and look for a wave. During an interview, he stated that he always looks out for those traveling up his trail. If he doesn't see them come back down in an hour, he is on the move to see if they are in trouble.
