A wild river, historic mining town, magnificent old-growth forest, and a large sparkling alpine lake set in an open basin of heather and huckleberry—this hike has wide appeal. Hike through Monte Cristo and over Poodle Dog Pass in the heart of a once-bustling mining district that bore little resemblance to the ghost town and surrounding wilderness of today.
