Smuggler Mountain Trail is a 14 mile out-and-back trail that features a lake and is rated as difficult. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Smuggler Mountain is the one directly across from Ajax, so when you get to the top there are great views.
This is a 6 mile hike that begins at 7900 ft and ends at 10.700 feet.
Only the first 1.5 miles is chill, then it gets steep.
The Smuggler mining claim was staked in 1879.
