The Prince of Wales mine trail is located in Alta, Utah in Little Cottonwood Canyon. This hike takes you through Grizzly Gulch, which is a popular spot for riding and making jumps in the winter time.
It is fairly easy and short - a nice 4.5 miles round trip. The beauty really distracts you from the effort. Also, this is a nice pre-season hike (what I like to call - lets get back in shape hike) with beautiful views, really deep mines, and really old transportation.
Take this old truck for instance:
We kept asking ourselves, "How did this truck get on its side?"
Or how about this old steam engine:
Also along the way, we saw beautiful flowers. Beautiful flowers you say? Your kidding me! :)
How about some mine action:
900 ft. Deep - Yikes.
Mines that hoard snow. What month is it?
The views didn't hurt either - they never do.
