4. Follow the Blue Blazes to the Tunnels

Continue following the blue blazes to the first tunnel, on the left. Standing in front of the tunnel, on a hot summer day, is especially exhilarating, as a rush of cool air from the depths of the earth swirls around you.

Mine Hill is honeycombed with 850 meters of tunnels. Today, the tunnels are too unstable to enter. Just past the first tunnel, the trail begins a steep ascent to the second tunnel where the trail bears to the right and evens out.

Ten minutes beyond the second tunnel, the elevated trail ends.
