Fun network of old mining roads.

A rugged and mostly barren mountainside with a confusing network of old mining roads. We’ve driven it many times and think it’s easier to follow traveling from west to east. Even with the latest MVUM in hand, you are likely to make a few wrong turns, but patience and a reliable GPS unit should help. If you’ve done the route before and want to try a different way, consider entering via Cumberland Gulch, shown on our map, but not described in detail. The 2010 MVUM shows no seasonal closures for this area.


Trail Ratings Defined

Narrow, rocky and steep in places, but no major obstacles. An aggessive, high-clearance, 4WD SUV can do it. The biggest challenge is not getting lost.
