If you enjoy mining history, alpine fishing and camping then this trail is a must do. You will gain a glimpse of the areas mining history as you begin the trail at the old townsite of Romley. You will then pass several arial tram towers that are still standing before you reach the Mary Murphy Mine area, which offers an opportunity to explore several of the old structures that are still standing. After the mine you will continue through meadows and heavy timber before you reach the parking area at an elevation of 12,109′ with a view of Lower Pomeroy Lake. Upper Pomeroy Lake is about a mile hike farther up the basin along an old road and is situated below Pomeroy Mountain (13,151′).
