If you are expecting a Brady Bunch style old mining town ( remember that episode?), you will be disappointed. Very little remains of the once thriving town purported to be populated by over 2000 when silver was in abundance here. Today there are just a handful of old timber shacks that have since been restored. Most of these contain little internal interest since they are empty frames. Still it is a rather unique setting and worth the stop. Be aware that in winter you are supposed to buy a permit from the nearby hut because the site is situated on a cross country ski field. You are also supposed to wear snow shoes to access the site. Apparently there is a fine if you fail to comply. You may get some leniency from the ranger if you arrive later in the day and explain that you only wish to view the buildings.
