Home / "Sky Pilot" Mine [61]

This mine sits at around 10,000' in the Sierra Nevada. It was worked from the late 1800s up through the 1950s. It is still in remarkably good condition, due to the chain of owners it had prior to being deeded to the USFS. 4WD with some clearance is needed to get up the steep road, and don't visit in Winter!
