Prospector’s Bluff is a small knob that offers great views of the surrounding area. The trail is an old mining road and is a great snowshoe destination. You get nice views of Tachek and Matzehtzel Mountains.
The old road has grown in with heavy Alder, so plan to bring a saw, machete or pruners to help clear the trail as you use it. If everyone helped one little bit at a time, the trail will be looking good in no time.
Cell service has partial coverage
There are no ribbon or signs along the way. Advanced navigational skills will be required. A combination of GPS data, spatially referenced digital maps, as well as a compass will be necessary for the best success. There are no amenities in the wilderness. Never venture out into the back country without proper gear and emergency provisions.
