Trail Overview

This trail up the canyon is a little more technical. Expect off-camber and rutted sections throughout, as well as some rocky spots and short, steep grades to navigate. The trail leads up to some really cool old mining trails, one of which you can drive up. There's even an old mine shaft that has been grated over, but be sure to still use caution around it. Once you reach the top, there are several other trails to explore.
