Eugenia Mine Trail
The Eugenia Mine Trail begins from the East
Longs Peak Trail on the south at about 9,677 feet. It climbs through 9,867
feet before descending to 9,692 feet at its intersection with the Old Storm
Pass Trail. The total length of the trail is about 1.3 miles. After leaving
the East Longs Peak Trail (.53 miles from ranger station), the trail makes
numerous climbs and descents toward the Eugenia Mine Site. You get some glimpses
of Estes Cone along the way. The trail reaches the mine site just after crossing
Inn Brook over a log foot bridge (about .9 miles). There are the remains of
an old miner's cabin, some mine tailings, and old equipment at the site. The
trail then descends through the forest and Moore Park, a large open area,
to the Old Storm Pass Trail.

Eugenia Mine Trail begins from the East Longs Peak Trail. The nearest trailhead
is the Longs Peak Trailhead.. Take Highway 7 south from Estes Park for about
8.8 miles to the Longs Peak Area turnoff. Turn right and travel about a mile
to the trailhead. The trailhead is near the ranger station and has space for
about 60 to 70 vehicles. There is additional parking along the entrance road.
This is a very popular area and fills quickly during the summer. Horses are
permitted but there is very little room for horse trailers. Your best bet
is along the right side of the road coming from the Longs Peak Campground.
Hike for .53 miles on the East Longs Peak Trail to the Eugenia Mine Trail.
