The mill is situated next to a scenic waterfall and surrounded by beautiful aspen trees. Visit during the fall and you’ll find some of the most dramatic foliage in the state. The mill was constructed in 1917 and offers a glimpse into what life must have been like in this ghost town over 100 years ago. It’s possible to hike to the mill, but most people drive an ATV given that it’s approximately 9 miles roundtrip from the nearest town.
