Sterling Mine Ditch - Wolf Gap to Armstrong Gulch 4-22-19

Photos by Bob and Fancie

We followed up our scouting hike with an assault by 15 hikers. Scenery was wonderful. Weather was perfect. This is the favorite Sterling Mine Ditch hike. Everyone had a great time and most of us capped it off with a stop at Boomtown (sans fries).

The pictures tell the story. 8.3 miles, mostly downhill or flat. Fantastic vistas of the mountains to the West and North.  I was surprised at the time we made as the 15 covered it in the same time as 3 of us the week before, setting a very good pace. . 

The next project will be to visit more of the peaks in the area.
