We've been up the French Gulch Trail twice, once with snow pack and once in the summer. We're retired and so we quickly abandoned our cross country skis in the winter to just hike. The thrill is always the mine at the top. Nice place...More

We often hike up the Sally Barber Mine Rd. when visiting Breckenridge. It's easily accessible off HWY 9 to French Gulch road just outside of Breckenridge. The parking lot is also used by mountain bikers who access the many trails in this extensive system. The...More

The Sallie Barber mine is outside of Breckenridge along the French Gulch Trail, not Silverthorne. Snowshoeing this trail is easy to moderate. From the Trail Head, head off the main road and wind back into the forest. The trail is well traveled and could even...More

This trail is on the northfacing side of Mt. Baldy, so it holds snow longer for skiing and snowshoeing. Starts just a short distance up from the parking area at the end of French Gulch Road east of Breckenridge.

The Sally Barber Mine Trail is a neat way to see some history while riding your bike or hiking. Not being from the area, we were told about this trail. Getting up the mountain took some effort, but the view from the mine was incredible,...More

The trail head is at the end of the maintained road (county rd 2) about 4 miles from highway nine just outside of Breckenridge. One passes a working mine, many mountain bike/hiking trails and breathtaking scenery during the Fall. There is a parking lot about...More

Thanks - you're correct, it is out of Breckenridge. Not sure why Siverthorne shows up as the location, as I was picking the mine from a provided list to review.
