Description

Old Robe Trail has really cool train tunnels dating back to the time they used rail for mining in the canyons. The tunnels and rail ties are still present. The trail starts nicely enough as it drops into the canyon where there are campsites. Getting from the camp sites along the river to the rest of the trail can be tricky.

Be careful when walking along the rail ties, they can be very slick when wet. The tunnels aren't long, though they can be dark for a time, so having a flashlight is helpful. There are rocks and other debris on the ground which can trip you in the dark.

There is a primitive trail that continues on and should be navigated with caution. There is a neat bridge that crosses over the running rapids, but be very careful crossing (20 ft above the rapids) or take the steep land route around.
