First: Lunch To-Go

Start the day by grabbing a lunch to go from Penny’s Diner.

Getting There: The Hike

With lunch packed up, head out of town on the Soldier pass Trail, a well maintained dirt road that climbs over the 7,388-foot Soldier pass in the Mineral Mountains. If you park right at the top of the pass there is a fence line, follow the trail on the east side of the fence  to discover the reservoir, a pool of water surrounded by the jagged rocks of the Mineral Mountains. This is a fun place for people of all ages and abilities to explore.

Optional: OHV

Another great way to explore the Minerals is on your OHV or ATV, there are a wide variety of trails in and around the Mineral Mountains, so if you have a ride, put this stop on your list.

Bring bait: Fishing

The reservoir is full of fish and whether you are fly fishing, spinning or baitcasting there is a good chance you will get a bite.
