We hiked the trail in Feb on packed snow. Nice trail! We took Nightmare on Baldy up from the mine. Beautiful! Lots of fun looking connector trails for future hikes.

Easy short hike good for beginners or people visiting from out of town. The mine site at the top was neat to look at and great views from the top as well.

A nice trail. More of a dirt road. But at the top are a bunch of trailheads. We did a couple of them and they were really nice. Especially True Romance.

We took four kids on this hike and it was perfect for a family hike. A gradual incline with a stream most of the way up. Rewarded at the top with the historic mine and amazing views. A great way to spend the morning!

Great hike. Wide, easy path that climbs uphill a a noticeable but not too difficult rate. AllTrails suggested this hike would take three hours. Nonsense. We were up and back in one hour.

This was cool. I went semi-randomly not really knowing what to expect. First hike in CO for myself and my 9 yr old lab mix. We got tired and were almost going to give up before getting to the Sallie Barber Mine but finally made it. The next day we came back with a friend and a puppy and more than doubled the hike by continuing past the mine and making a loop that came out on French Gulch gravel road. There were a couple isolated points where the entire trail was snow covered but the dogs loved it. Only complaint is that at the very beginning of the trail there is quite a lot of dog poo. I think a couple signs telling owners to pick up, or at least move into the trees, dog waste off the trail would be great.

Went in early May. Wish we would have had snowshoes. We were with 2 small children, so between the snow and the kids, it didn't feel like an "easy" hike.

Nice trail , it is an old road most of the way. The mine is in good shape with lots of information posted nearby. Very flat good for kids.

Nice hike up beautiful broad trail to the Sally Barber Mine. Beautiful vistas. We went early June, allowing us to enjoy the sights and sounds of snow melt while walking the dry trail. Great way to spend a couple hours.

This is a great little trail that leads to the Sallie Barber Mine. It is gravel most of the way and provides great views of Breckenridge. Great trail for beginners!
