A short ride that ends at a large, deep mine shaft.

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

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.

Why does this section of trail get its own designation? I'm pretty sure you can't get to it without doing the Inner and/or Outer Flourite loops, and you can't do the Outer loop without doing this trail.. Anyway, come here for some scenic 'froadin or dirt biking or hiking or death shaft rapelling or something but don't bring your mountain bike. Nov 17, 2015
