Here's a new trail we just rode to the Tip Top Mine. It took us a step back in time to the late 1880s. We saw many Jeeps and Off Road Vehicles along the way.


All the info including maps, videos and pictures are here

Thanks and enjoy!

Never heard of the town of Packer.Is it up the trail that heads to Milk Ranch towards CK.I know if you go left up over the hill you can see the lake.Then ahead about a mile or so you come to the old town of Columbia and Red Star Mine but there's a bunch of mines there.
I was always told the creek on the way to Tip Top was Boulder Creek.Anyway great article.We have pics of it back in the early 80's.I imagine a lot of it is gone now.

It is Packer, right before Milk Ranch. Columbia I believe is another trail and I heard that one is really rough too.

It could be called boulder creek, the road that follows it says cottonwood creek on google. I think i might change it.
thanks

I was looking at a old topo Boulder Creek starts on the South side of Tip Top.It looks like Cottonwood Creek drains into it.
I talked to someone couple years said they made it thru the Columbia route to Humbug.Guess civilization graded it in 06 and mining activity but that's just what I heard.
If your interested and I find those old pics of Tip Top and some of Ore Belle I can email them to you.
Mike

How is the Agua Fria crossing at Gillette?
I got a report that it is quick-sandy now since the big rains.

I really need to get out there myself. Its been a year already
