Gold Basin Mill Pond Interpretive Trail


Located directly across from the Gold Basin Campground entrance, this interpretive site includes a short barrier-free trail. An old mill site is the highlight of the area. The five-foot wide trail ends on a floating viewpoint that looks across an old millpond. Interpretive signs describe the history of the mill and area wildlife.
