There's still a few cabins in existence if you know where to look for them... as well as a considerable number of old mines. You can E-mail me for specific informatiom if you want. I explored that area for over 15 years.

I ran across a post I made several years ago as Harry Robinson. If anyone is still interested, I have a few pictures of the old mines and some of the old buildings (or remains of) in those areas. As I mentioned previously, I moved to Alaska 8 years ago & haven't hiked those areas since then. I'm sure things have continued to change. The Mineral City road was still driveable when I first started hiking there & there was still a visible trail leading to Hard Pass and the Sultan Basin.
