We are no longer able to park directly next to the trailhead. SO PLEASE PARK ALONG FOOTHILL (about 50 yds east of Trudy Way). There is sign next to a paved footpath that reads 'Skyline Hiking Trail' and we will meet there.
~Do not leave valuables in your parked car.~
Tin Mine Canyon Trail
Let's take a nice break from our weekly Skyline Drive hike and explore the Tin Mine Canyon Trail alongside a creek and though canopies of trees and vegetation. We start at the same location, but this time we'll hike directly into the Cleveland National Forest canyon to an old, abandoned Tin Mine, where we'll poke around, take pics, share a few laughs and then come back the way we came.
We will hike for about 2 hours and complete around 4-5 miles.
The mine is closed off for safety reasons, so don't get any ideas about going inside. But that's okay, because we'll have a good time and see plenty just getting there. And we may venture a little farther past the mine.
There is some poison oak along the trail, so you WILL have to watch your step.
Be sure to bring water, an energy snack, and either a headlamp or flashlight as it will be hot and we may be hiking back in darkness.
RSVP: Only if you are planning to attend!
