    Is this site on private property?

    I have been to the Winthrop/Twisp area many times but did not know of this site near Mazama. I have an old red/black/white book titled Gold Creeks and Ghost Towns of Northeastern Washington but it doesn't cover Mazama.

    I'll be on a DR650 in mid september checking out this place as well as others and would like to pin the location down but also need to know if it is on private property. Also, how far from a road do you have to hike to get to the site?

    Thanks.

    Default Accessing the Montana Mine?

    How did you access the mine? Did you go up from Goat Creek or down from Fawn Peak? We found an old abandoned road near Goat Creek this weekend that looks like it should go up to the mine but the water level is too high (spring runoff) at this time of year to ford the creek. Looks like the road crossed it & kept going. Loved your photos - we've lived in this area for 22 years and have done a lot of hiking, camping, exploring but have never been to this mine. Hope to get to it this summer.
