Cascade - Portland / Cascade Trail Tie


Near the end of the Portland Mine Trail, the trail forks. The right fork takes you to the Portland Mine, while the left fork takes you to another junction with the Upper Cascade Trail. Turn right at this junction to continue on the Upper Cascade Trail. Turning left will take you to the Amphitheater Campground cul-de-sac or to town via the 5th Avenue trail. Go to Upper Cascade and Chief Ouray Mine for information on the rest of the trail.
