A mix of single and double track, Miners is usually used as a climbing trail to get to the Redtop trail. The trail is minimally technical and what it lacks in interest it delivers in efficiency as it provides the quickest route to upper Redtop from the town of Rossland ... the trail is steep and at times unrelenting Take a moment to enjoy the viewpoint halfway to the top.

The intersection of Miners and Redtop is the defining mark between Upper Redtop and Lower Redtop.

Access Info

Accessed by taking Moe's and connecting to Larry's - Miners starts at the summit of Larry's (from either direction).

Miners intersects Redtop and divides it into upper and lower redtop. Trail users can either choose to either descend Lower Redtop or climb Upper Redtop towards Red Mountain Summit and the Redhead descent.
