Description

Hikers will enjoy exploring the ruins of Ryan Ranch which originally supplied water to Lost Horse Mine. Keep a sharp eye out for the old pipes and a water tower. The walls of Ryan Ranch are said to be "made of gold" because of the tiny bit of gold left in the adobe used.

Short Walk: The site can be accessed by a short hike on the Ryan Ranch Trail.

Family Friendly: Kids will love exploreing the ruins.
