Iron Chest Mine
Very challenging trail, but a classic favorite with outstanding views at the top. Explore Iron Chest Mine and Ghost House. Obey all signs and do not enter any structures. Following the rules will keep this trail open.
The buildings at Iron Chest Mine are over 100 years old and are in relatively good condition given the 12,000-ft. altitude. A giant pulley lies on the ground in front of a large tram house with tram towers going down the mountain. Just over the high ridge above the mine is the Mary Murphy Mine, which can be reached via Pomeroy Lakes, Trail #41. Take a short 250-yard hike to the interesting Ghost House near start of trail. The cabin was built in 1886. Flattened tin cans were used as roof shingles.
