Candalaria Ghost Town and Belleville Mining Camp Trail

Candalaria Ghost Town and Belleville Mining Camp Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A paved two-lane road leads nearly all the way to Candelaria ghost town where numerous structures remain, including several stone and wooden buildings. Huge tailings piles surround the paved road that runs between the highway and Cadelaria, as well as the town itself. The pavement ends just before Candelaria ghost town, and then the road is a wide, graded dirt road. The road remains very wide until reaching the turnoff to Belleville town site.

Beyond Candelaria, there are signs of the mining activity of the early days on the surrounding hills. The road also follows the route of the old Carson & Colorado Railroad, and the railroad grade is visible on the hillside to the north of the trail. Sagebrush is the main vegetation adorning the landscape around the flat, easygoing road. Special Attractions: Candelaria ghost town. Belleville town site. Other tracks off the main trail to explore."

We only went as far as Candalaria, from highway 95. The drive is easy for any vehicle, paved most of the way. The mine tailings are so huge they are unreal; they are entire new hills that didn't exist before the modern mine. The mine itself is amazing, and the ghost town has a bunch of cool ruins to explore.
