Trail Overview
West Magnolia
Kids will love this small area with intersecting forest roads and camping. To camp, enter at the north end. No dirt bikes allowed on this trail. Open May 15 to November 30.
History
Champion Mine was in operation until about 1940. The main shaft was 250 ft. deep with cross-cut shafts 80 to 150 ft. long. The mine produced primarily gold and silver. Several buildings, including an assay office, boarding house, blacksmith shop, pump house and president’s cottage, made up a small company town called Phoenix. The 10-stamp press at the mill is worth the hike.
Getting There
From Rollinsville on Hwy. 119, just south of mile marker 21, head west 0.8 mile on C.R. 16. Turn right uphill on F.S. 105.
