Need to Know

At the miner's cabin, a short extension takes you to remnants of the Red Mask Mine near the parking area off Hwy 130 just west of Lobby Flats Observation Area.

Description

The trail starts across the highway from the Lake Marie Parking lot with an easy hike on level ground through a wooded area about 0.5 mile. It opens out onto a scenic view of the deep canyon and rushing French Creek below and the towering Snowy Range above. The trail then descends toward the creek and crosses it several times throughout the hike. Once out of the woods, you cross a meadow, climb a boulder field, then a short trip back through the forest brings you to the Miner’s Cabin, a dilapidated structure used by miners at the Red Mask Mine located a short distance away.
