821 stairs are easy to go down but take a lot of energy going up. The mine site is neat but very run down. If you go to the other side of the gorge and pass Endless Wall’s two trailheads and make the next right to house head trailhead you can walk to a mine site that is in much better shape. You can still walk the whole way down to the river if you want to challenge yourself (1 hour 20 minutes down- nice people gave us a ride up or I might still be walking).

Dont let the 821 stairs dissuade you. There are landings so it isn't straight down, or up, and you can take them at your own pace. They are wide and well maintained. The trickiest part of the trail is getting to the stairs. Approximately one half mile of dirt trail can be slippery in wet conditions (as I found out) and a ledge close to a drop that was worn by erosion. There is an interpretive sign at the top of the trail and at the bottom you can view the remains of a couple of coal mining buildings, just like at the Headhouse Trail, with the addition of a tipple (read the interpretive sign) and the mine entrance. The area is well documented with informative signs.

The first part of the hike is steep and rocky which requires watching your step carefully. It brings you to the middle stage of the mine and the history there is quite interesting. The history continues as you go down a 800+ step staircase but isn’t worth a heart attack coming back up if you have any cardiac or pulmonary limitations.

Don't be fooled... It is actually closer to a 3 mile hike if you want to walk all the way down to the mine town ruins. It's definitely worth it, but it's quite a trek if it's a hot day or if you're not a fan of steps! It's definitely a mile and a half down and about a mile and a half up. Very cool to see all the remnants! :D

Kind of realized that we were going to finish this with a giant sense of accomplishment. Yes, we did! There is a bit of a hike to the steps, then the steps. Was a lot of them! But, was really cool to see the ruins of this mine town. Bottom line is it was a great form of exercise. We spent some time at the bottom and some time before you start the steps to look at all the ruins. All in all, we did it all in less than 2 hours. Elevation change was close to 800 feet and over 8000 steps according to my app. Was a great time and something you should do when in town. Helps makes up for the extra vacation eating.

Strenuous hike with lots of steps. Worth the experience to see some of the remains of the mining operations. Some basic information available on displays was quite helpful.

This was a fascinating place to visit. The abandoned mining town is interesting, but wow, the 821 stairs leading to the buildings are a challenge! The trail was suggested to us, and we were told about the steps but we had no idea that there was a lot of steep, uneven terrain before we even got to the steps. We enjoyed the hike and took tons of pics once we got to the mining area. There are restricted areas due to the dilapidated buildings but it made for great pictures. It was a hot afternoon when we hiked down, and we had plenty of water but climbing up 821 steps just about did us in. It was worth the steps but for those who have knee problems, it’s a bit painful!

This hike was well worth the effort. My wife and I started the trail from the Kaymore Top parking lot. Being a new National Park unfortunately there are very few trail markers at junctions on the trail. There was a newly cleaned up trail about halfway down from the parking lot that we took by mistake rather than going to the right and down to the Kaymore Miners Trail. We ended up hiking along a wall of rocks for about 30 minutes and luckily ran into some rock climbers who were nice enough to describe how to get back to the parking lot. We were way off but it was a nice hike with great rock formations and a beautiful waterfall. I have no idea what trail we took by mistake but there is an orange colored stretcher tied to a tree near a trail that heads up the mountain that will take you back to the parking lot. After a short rest we restarted our hike back to to the Kaymore Mine. I'm glad it was close to Father's Day or else my wife would have been all over me. Great day of hiking.

Honestly, this was the best hike of my life all for the sake of a man we met fifty feet down the trail. He described the trek as “not worth it” for the “dilapidated buildings” at the bottom. He had some mud on him and a leaf on the back of his head as if he’d taken a tumble. Our expectations were so low after that that we were pleasantly surprised and the 827 some stairs were worth it. Leaf man, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing ok. <3

This trail is short but challenging. It had ice on some parts, but my kids like it. A lot of stairs, but it is advertised that way. I wish you could explore the mining area more, but it is old and falling down.
