We drove to the park and got information and see the old mines. It was a hot day and we found out we had to do a couple of fairly strenuous hikes to get to follow the mine trails with some interpertave sign along the...More

Great scenery and a pleasant hike. Just make sure you have a hat and sunscreen as you will be out in the sun!

Park was easy to find and trail maps were available at the trailhead. It being a state park, there is a $5 fee that you self-pay at the trailhead. There are hills, but nothing too strenuous so good for beginners. There was evidence of horseback...More

My neighbors and I have often visited the State Park here for hiking and even sometimes for horseback riding locally. It's a series of rolling hills with very easy hikes. Not a lot of steep inclines, so it's an easy way to see the old...More

Neat to see actual old silver and turquoise mines. The old shafts are gated off, but you can see where they were, and imagine what the prospecting life was like. Nearby Madrid has a museum with more info, and a row of miner's houses turned...More
