Description

A hike through a bird nesting area to an abandoned mine surrounded by magnificent mountain vistas makes this a great trail. Access to the Eagles Nest Wilderness in the Gore Range is another attraction of this trail.

This trail would benefit greatly from going maybe another mile farther into the drainage. The trail stops just as you get out of the trees and have a clear view of the mountains. Mar 13, 2016
