There’s a good chance you might not see another soul on this 24-mile semiloop trip through the remote western Trinity Alps. However, solitude is not the only feature, as the trail takes you through the Historic Mining District, an area rich in history from the bygone days of mining activity during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Although it is hard to believe when you’re standing on the site, at one time Old Denny had 500 residents. Along with the history, you will travel partway along the cascading waters and deep green pools of Slide and Eagle creeks.
