Union River is a place reminiscent of an art gallery with a theme of falling water, and it seems counterproductive to rush from display to display. Begin your hike at the Union Mine Trailhead. Note that a series of numbered posts suggest a clockwise tour of this loop trail. If you enjoy learning a bit about history with your hiking, follow the loop in this direction.The informational signs along the way point out crumbled mine shafts and original roads, along with journal excerpts from some of those early miners.
