Overview

Narrow mountain road goes to historic gold-mine buildings.

Beautiful high views with many historic mines and buildings directly along the route. Interesting side roads to explore. Major feature of this route is a cluster of very interesting buildings of the Treasure Mountain Gold Mining Company. At the end of the trail, when you reach California Gulch, turn right to loop back through Animas Forks or turn left to reach California Pass.
