Lenawee Trail #34

  

This trail climbs steadily up to tree line through lodgepole pine, spruce and fir forests. After reaching the alpine, the trail becomes less evident and the hiker must pay close attention to the rock cairns marking the trail. The Jumbo Mine may be viewed from the trail, as well as spectacular views of Dillon Reservoir to the west and the mountains of the Continental Divide to the east and south. The Peru Creek drainage is rich in mining history with numerous underground mine shafts, so be careful where you walk.
