"A great little trip for the family. You can see a well preserved cabin and mine within a mile of the start. There are still remnants of an aerial tramway that once carried ore down to the railroad. The hardy hiker can find fishing at the two Pomeroy Lakes. Several historic mine buildings remain intact. Get close to remote fishing lakes. Great trail for ATVs and dirt bikes. Steep and rocky below lakes. Very narrow shelf road climbs to Mary Murphy Mine. Mary Murphy Mill can be reached over easy terrain. Difficult portions of trail are not suitable for stock vehicles."

The Pomeroy Lakes Trail is a jeep road that was formerly access to the Mary Murphy Mine and other smaller mines. The road is mostly in good shape and passable with high-clearance 4WD vehicles and ATVs all the way to the parking lot at the end. Our 2WD Jeep Cherokee made it about 1/2 mile to 10,840' MSL, where parking is available at the creek crossing. A pleasant 2 mi. hike from there to the lower lake at 12,035'. The fishing is best in the deeper water about 30' from shore. Very scenic basin at the lakes and along most of the trail.
