Trail Overview

This short trail takes you to the old mine dump/tailings of the French Lily Mine. Most of this trail is pretty easy-going until you start descending to Crazy Basin Creek. The trail becomes extremely rocky and a very uneven road on a moderate decline. After this hill, the last 100 yards are back to being easy-going, and you end on the old tailings pile from the mine. Paint damage may be possilbe due to overgrown vegetation. There is a nice camp spot on the side of this trail towards the beginning.
