From the trailhead, itís
approximately 1.7 miles up a snow packed road to the old Boston Mine ruins
at 11,500í, and in my opinion, one of the coolest views. If there hasnít
been any recent fresh snow, the road will most likely be OK for warm
hiking boots, but I would highly recommend snowshoes or skis, especially
for when you get up to the end, where the snow will definitely be deeper.
The hike up is a nice stroll, going through the trees, past a few old mine
buildings, and gaining about 580í of elevation over those 1.7 miles.
