Overview

Great road to high views and amazing Santiago Ghost Town.

Incredible views from 13,132-ft. Argentine Pass and top of McClellan Mountain. Don’t miss historic buildings at Santiago Mine and Ghost Town. Many legal side roads to explore. Numerous tourist attractions in quaint Georgetown. Check out new visitor center near freeway exit.

Rating

Moderate
Trail Ratings Defined

Rocky at the start and very narrow at the top of Argentine Pass. Much of the lower route is easy unless you take alternate route 248.1B along creek. Snow can block trail well into summer. Follow an old railroad grade to top of McClellan Mtn. Need aggressive stock SUV with low range.
