Great views!

Hiked from the main parking lot up to the mining structures, then took the road that veers right at the top (south I believe), and went up and over the saddle. Not many people on that trail, and some great views!

Hot wildflower spot

Prime spot for wildflowers in mid-July and a great location for night photography.

Great Day Hike

This makes such a great day hike as well!
