“An educational and interesting trail through an 1800's placer mine arena.”
— Joel Larner
Nice interpretive signage for cool old mining devices make this an educational and interesting stop for the whole family.
No mountain biking.
The Iowa Hill Trail is a pleasant stroll through an 1800's placer mine site with many interpretive signs along the way. A number of short side trails take you to interesting preserved mining machinery and the old boarding house.
This is a nice shorter route for families or anyone visiting the area to see what mining looked like a hundred years ago.
Flora & Fauna
Not much. As an old hydraulic placer mine, it's rough rocky terrain with some new tree growth but not much underbrush.
