Minnehaha Basin is an extremely scenic in-and-out trail that provides epic vista views like many others in the Silverton area. Mining history along the road is very prevalent, and this is the only trail in the area that allows you to look down on the Gold King Mine, the epicenter of the 2015 EPA wastewater disaster. This road has three branches making for a fun-filled day of exploring.
