Spec Mines Lollipop
About 8.5 miles, Challenging terrain, some steep and off trail
15 mile drive, no shuttle, $1.00 carpool fee
This lollipop route begins and ends on the BRP near the Montvale Overlook. We will take the Spec
Mines Trail down to a forest service road before going off trail for 1.5 miles
up a branch to explore the abandoned munitions buildings and iron ore mine.
Continuing up the old rail path to an unnamed trail, we descend again to the FS
road which takes us back to the Spec Mines trail for our ascent to the parking
area. Bring a flashlight if you would like to go into the mine.
