SILVER ISLET
The Silver Islet Mine is possibly the most intact remaining structural artifact of mining history in the Pitkin Area.  Visiting the Silver Islet will provide an unforgettable experience.  Remember to take your camera!

BOULDER LAKE HIKE BOULDER LAKE
This is one of the most user-friendly trails I have hiked. There are less rocks and loose materials to navigate than usual. There are a few markers without signs later in the hike. Ignore them and continue on the main trail. The trail is very clearly defined all the way to the next SIGN POST that you will encounter.

LOWER LAMPHIER LAKE HIKE

If a relatively steep two mile hike sounds interesting, the Lower Lamphier trek may be one to consider. The trail is rocky in places but sure footing can be found by watching the trail. Water and snacks or a picnic lunch will be needed and appreciated during the round trip hike.  Click here for detailed hike directions.

SHERROD LOOP HIKE

Looking for a short but interesting hike? Touring the Sherrod Loop on foot may be just right for you! The hike is .35 mile total and the walking is easy with only 36 feet of altitude gain in total. Details>>>.

ROOSEVELT MINE HIKE

If you have not visited an old authentic mine in the Pitkin area, this may be the hike for you. The accompanying pictures display highlights you will see first hand. The hike is a mixture of easy hiking on the old mine grade to more challenging areas that require stability on your feet. The round trip is about 1 1/2 miles and your interest in what you see will determine the time required.   Details>>>.

TUNNEL LAKE HIKE

The Tunnel Lake round trip hike is four miles. Trip begins at the top of Alpine Tunnel and utilizes the Altman Pass trail.  Allow plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings. Details>>>.
