Iron Chest Mine ATV Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Iron Chest Mine at the end of the trail is very photogenic and one of my favorites. Hike to the historic Ghost House on left at start of trail. After the boulder field, a narrow trail winds through the trees and quickly climbs above timberline. A narrow section of shelf road can be blocked by snow well into July. Trail has deep ruts at the top due to erosion by melting snow. Services: Full services in Buena Vista and Salida. Gas and supplies at Mt. Princeton Country Store on C.R. 162. Supplies, but no gas for sale at St. Elmo General Store; however, they do rent ATVs. St. Elmo also has a small bed & breakfast. (See appendix for contact information.)"
