Overview

A fun high-desert, backcountry route to the historic Chilito Copper Mine.

A fun high-desert, backcountry route to the historic Chilito Copper Mine (on private property). Trail winds uphill to great views of canyons and Christmas Mine. See unique cabin with tree growing through the roof. Large gate at Wpt. 06 has been unlocked for years and the area was not posted closed. However, if gate is locked, be prepared to return the way you came, or drive trail in reverse to begin with. Trail crosses some State Trust Land.

Rating

Trail is mostly moderate. Difficulty comes from steep climbs and intermittent rocky spots. One badly washed-out switchback south of Wpt. 04 could become a problem.
