“Tour of the Boston Hill Trail System near Silver City.”— Matt Hage
Boston Hill recalls the Town's historic era of hard-rock mining for copper, silver and other precious metals. You'll run past several collapsed mines and into ravines created in the search fro precious metals. Views of the surrounding area are superb!
Round a bend at mile 2.9 to start ascending recently made switchback. Bypass trails leading off to the left as you make your way back to the first major intersection. Hang a right to return down to the Market Street Trailhead.
