Explore the Abandoned Tintic Standard Reduction Mill

Utah Tintic Standard Reduction Mill

Added by Doran Erickson

Awesome Abandoned Mill with Graffiti and nearby Swimming Hole

Parking just off the road in a dirt lot you walk about 7 minutes before heading up the hill to reach the Mill. Going up and down the hill can be a bit difficult with loose rock covering the hill side. Once you make it about half way up the hill you can explore the rubble filled and graffiti covered cement ruins of the Mill. Catching the sunset here is a must. The mill sits on the western side of the hill and lights up as the sun sets in the west. Golden hour is spectacular here. 

Before reaching the mill there is a medium-ish sized swimming hole with clear, cool water. During the warmer months it's great to take a dip.

How to Get There

Great Spot

Lots of old buildings like this in this area of Utah. This is by far one of the largest and most well preserved though, hopefully it never gets demolished.
