Old Banner Road Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Honeycombed hillsides and bits and pieces of rusted equipment—that is the legacy left behind by Julian’s gold-mining heyday over a century ago. Although a few mines continue to be worked sporadically even today, most have long been abandoned. For a look at the Warlock Mine—one of the first mines to be discovered (1870) and one of the last to be extensively worked—try this short hike down the Old Banner Toll Road."
