Classic hard-core trail with historic structures at Iron Chest Mine. The buildings at Iron Chest Mine are over 100 years old and are in relatively good condition given the 12,000-ft. altitude. A giant pulley lies on the ground in front of a large tram house with tram towers going down the mountain. Just over the high ridge above the mine is the Mary Murphy Mine, which can be reached via Pomeroy Lakes. Take a short 250-yard hike to the interesting Ghost House near start of trail. The cabin was built in 1886. Flattened tin cans were used as roof shingles. Iron Chest has always been known for its difficult boulder field. When the boulders were pushed aside to allow maintenance at the mine, many hard-core enthusiasts were disappointed. I’m happy to report that the boulders have returned and the trail is now harder than ever. I barely got through with 33-inch tires and two lockers. Extremely difficult for ATVs.
