Hiking Cady Pass

This remote trail in the Pasayten follows an old mining road up to a pass before dropping down into the adjacent valley and linking up with the unmaintained Mill Creek Trail. 

The area used to access the Azurite Mine via a trail mostly on open hillsides and ridge tops. The trail requires a crossing of Slate Creek at the beginning, but with no bridge across it, the crossing can be difficult in high water.
