Hike to the Old Hundred Boarding House

Saturday, August 21, 7:00 am Register by Email

This classic hike takes us to the Old Hundred Boarding House. This spectacular old miners’ boarding house is perched on the side of Galena Mountain with spectacular views. It has been minimally restored as an historic landmark. The hike will be rated moderate if you only go to the overlook of the mine. If you choose to make the short but steep scramble down the loose scree to the boarding house you will likely rate it challenging. There is some exposure, but well worth it. Poles will be helpful. Post-hike visit to the ruins of the nearby Buffalo Boy mine.
Limit 12, no dogs on scramble to the boarding house. 4WD/HC necessary, Carpool $13.
