DIRECTIONS: Exit 210 Freeway in Pasadena, exit on Lake Ave going north to the mountains. Lake Ave eventually turns left and become Loma Alta Drive. Turn right on Chaney Trail and go about one mile to the entrance seen above.


1/4 mile from the entrace is the Sunset Ridge Trail which leaves the fire road and decends to the river. Follow the trail around the canyon walls, past Millard Falls to the cabin shown above. From there, descend to the riverbed and follow it upstream to the mine..
