Old Mine Trail

Old Mine Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A casual walk along the permanently closed Carbon River Road leads to an extremely steep, but short ascent to the entrance to a decommissioned mine. The trail weaves around majestic trees, some fallen and some standing tall. You will see mossy logs and big ferns lining both sides of the trail.

The closure of the Carbon River Road has significantly reduced the amount of traffic in the Carbon River Area. Trails like Chenuis Falls and Green Lake, which once provided day hikers with easy treks in the woods and lovely destinations, have become unworkable for many hikers with the added miles to reach what once was a drive-to trailhead."
