This trail has more historical significance than beauty. It ends at the famed Sunnyside Mine. Unfortunately, only foundations remain today. There is a large campground at Eureka Townsite at the base of the trail. Eureka was established in 1875 with an active post office until 1942. Sunnyside Mine produced over $50 million. Mines under Lake Emma collapsed in 1978 and the lake drained. No one was hurt, but it took 2 years to clean up the damage. Judge Terry’s Midway Mill was the final destination for ore in the early tramway system. The Angle Tram Station was part of a 2nd tram system to carry ore to the newer Sunnyside Mill. The foundations of this mill can be seen on left as you start up the trail. There is no clear hiking path up to the tram station, so take a telephoto lens if you want close-up pictures. ATVs are allowed on trail. A staging area is located near the trail start. Most of the land, beyond the road, is private reclaimed mining land and is not open to the public. Road is mildly rocky and rutted but fairly wide even at top of mountain. Side trip on lower portion of trail is somewhat overgrown with one rocky water crossing just before Midway Mill. Main road is suitable for any 4x4 SUV. High clearance recommended for lower side trip.
