Cinnabar has the best and most complete buildings of any old (unoccupied) mine town I've ever been too...  also, the road going out of Cinnabar up the mountain to Monumental summit is a FUN ROAD!!  not to be missed!

What a beautiful area.  The ride in was fun with my 2nd ever "major" water crossing.  The ride out was a hoot!  Tight switchbacks, steep terrain, muddy, rocky, and an ATV trail to boot!

With few exceptions, this is one of the most complete towns I've seen. You can clearly see how it must've been a bustling area when it was active.

Best ride of the year. This one will be hard to beat!

I rode in from the Monumental summit side, down the four wheeler trail with all of the steep switchbacks. I was glad I didn't hvae to go back out that way because I was pretty wore out by the time I got to the bottom.
