Kaymoor Mine Loop Professional Review and Guide
"What a rewarding and historic hike! Start by taking the steep Kaymoor Miners Trail and descend through alluring forest and impressive geology to reach the Kaymoor Mine, one of the most intact mine sites around. See building relics, signage, structures, and the mine itself. An optional spur takes you to the bottom of the gorge to view more history. Otherwise, the hike travels along the mid-slope of the gorge easterly in more national park–level scenery and then returns via the Craig Branch Trail, where you enjoy upland hardwoods on a doubletrack path before passing through a set of mountain-biking trails. Reach the mountain-biking trail parking area, and then it is but a short road walk to complete the loop."
