Explore the Abandoned Tintic Standard Reduction Mill

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.

amazing views

when i was doing my research about this place, it was mostly marked to keep people out for their own safety, i donโ€™t think law enforcement has been there for a while because of all the signs covered up. four other cars of people were there when i went around sunset, no one worried about cops. beautiful views for sunset & so fun to just wander around & explore.

Worth It!

Just a bit in from the side road -- short hike and amazing view. Remember to bring water. Really nice outing. Amazing photos.

No Trespassing

I went to the mill today to explore with a few friends, and there were some new signs up. No trespassing signs, and warning signs mentioning that there were high levels of arsenic and lead in the area. My friends and I didn't think too much of the signs and continued to explore and take some rad photos. However, on the hike back, we were stopped by law enforcement and issued warnings. The officer took down our names and entered us into the local system with a warning. It's now considered illegal trespassing to explore the mill. Consider this before venturing further.
