   This view is of the surface structures of the Trail Tunnel in Eclipse Gulch going into the west slope of Bull Hill. This mine was very near the famous Cresson Mine.
   While the quality of this view is not so great, is still gives a hint of how the area was, and some of the structures that appeared at this Adit type of a mine. There is a shed and a orehouse and loading dock at end of a small trestle out from the large dump that this mine has created. No railroad ever came to this spot so this was a horse wagon type operation to get ore out from, down the valley at right I believe.Trail Tunnel

      General notes:
      Map is quite nice as in the southern part of it, there is a road drawn in, a road that turns around in a loop, where an Ore House is drawn inside of the loop. There is also drawn a Tool Shop in addition to a Adit/tunnel where there is a Winze marked near the end of the tunnel. Also an Incline is shown east of the tunnel, almost at the end of the tunnel. West of the tunnel, the Discovery Shaft is marked.
