Description

This section of the trail connects Fluorite Ridge: Inner Loop with the Fluorite Ridge: Outer Loop Trail. The end of this trail is characterized by a large vertical mine shaft. The shaft is not marked, covered or at all protected. Use extreme caution when approaching as this is a fall hazard. There are several great views of both Cookes Peak and the Florida Mountains from this trail as it passes along the base of Fluorite Ridge.
