The trail can get washed out in spots from snow runoff and rain.


Dun Glen Cemetery is located below town but not at its original location, the Dun Glen Cemetery is the final resting place of the Nelson family, Civil War era pioneers. In 2003, a mining company applied for and received permits to mine the original location, and agreed to exhume and reinter the remains. The company fell short of its promise and left the remains above ground for two years in makeshift coffins. They were finally laid to rest in October 2005
