Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This historic gold miners trail begins across the road from Mineral Camp Campground. Follow the trail north through large second growth Douglas fir to the Fairview Creek trail bridge. Once across Fairview Creek, you'll be greeted by towering old growth trees, steep rock walls, footbridges, and a cascading stream. During higher flows in winter and spring, several creeks cut across the trail, so bring shoes that can get wet.

Expect to encounter wildlife as you venture down the trail.
