Minnie Mine Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The sides of French Gulch sport golden wounds of mine tailings while the bottom is filled with boulder piles dredged from the creek bedrock in the endless quest for gold. Take a walk past historic mines on Prospect and Mineral Hills and the remains of an old gold dredge.

An exhibit of a concentration mill jig explains how miners sorted the rocks and settled out the valuable minerals. Learn about the gold and silver mining history of Breckenridge through interpretive signs at several of the sites. While no active gold mines remain, the golden aspen make this hike a real treat in autumn!"
