Iron Chest Mine Trail

Iron Chest Mine Trail is another trail not suited for ATVs and SUVs. You need at least 33” tires and lockers both ends so again we had this 3 mile trail to ourselves. The first 1/2 mile is a tough boulder field then its a rocky climb to the 100 year old mine which is still in good shape due to being above 12,000 feet.
