Went exploring today trying to find this mine. Found Hamilton mine a d some huge cuts in the rock but couldn't find the enterance to sunkin mine. Anyone ever been? Know where it is ?
Yes it's a seasonal road its open spring summer fall and they close it for the winter, any advice finding the sunken mine ?It was posted back in the late 70s/early 80s when I was hanging out there. We ignored the signs too. Quite a few years ago they closed the road (Sunken Mine Road?). Did they ever re-open it?
Going from my no longer so fantastic memory, if you go in from Denny Town Road, winding past the turtle pond on the left, down the hill and the road curves to the right (crossing a small stream). You should see an open expanse ahead of you. The trail to the various mine shafts is to the left. You should see a bunch of slag dumped into the field from the old copper mine. You'll need to head up somewhat as you go.Yes it's a seasonal road its open spring summer fall and they close it for the winter, any advice finding the sunken mine ?
Thansk Yes your directions make sence, I've been to hidden lake following the three lakes trail ,it is nice there.Also, if you go to the top, there is (what we called) Hidden Lake. Beautiful lake, we used to fish and swim in.
If you should travel further down Sunken Mine Road, there is a trail leading to (what we called) Sky High. About a mile up, fairly steep climb (again we carried coolers of beer with us). You can see The Hudson River and even Indian Point on a clear day from there.
