Hornsilver Giant Mine

The Hornsilver is a fairly remote silver mine and camp. It was a good producer early on and had its ore hauled to a local mill, but like most mines, it was worked only intermittently.

The original road to the camp is long overgrown and washed away. We tried heading up it but to no avail. Instead, we came down from the top, which was a steep off-trail scramble. It is an interesting but small site. I’m sure there is more to be found hidden in the undergrowth. We will have to return sometime.
