Runner Notes

Most often used as part of a loop starting from Summerhaven area, up Summit Rd, down Red Ridge to the fork (leave Red Ridge) headed toward Dan's Saddle (a climb) and back up to Summerhaven. This loop is approximately 8.5 miles and 2750 ft of elevation loss/gain.

Description

The Catalina Camp Trail changes about 1200 feet along an overgrown old jeep track along a steep canyon or drainage the eventually leads down to an old mine and establishment. The trail is overgrown and grassy. It switchbacks many times and on occasion can be a little hard to follow.

Once you reach Catalina Camp, there will be a small cabin and shed to explore. Just east of the cabin, notice a small cairned path heading off into the drainage to your north. This leads to a small old mine. This is presumably part of the Hartman Homestead Mines.
