Some recorded cultural resource sites in the area that were recorded in the 1930's. My few visits I did not note much mining activity. I think the Greenback area was used by troops from Camp Reno to access higher up in the Sierra Anchas.

Re: Proposed Permanent Closure to Recreational Shooting - CNF

I was once out target practicing when no shooting restrictions were in place. Target was still set up and somebody was actually shooting a firearm nearby and shortly thereafter forest law enforcement shows up and jumped out of his vehicle.

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

During my career we would respond only to be canceled by the Sheriff's Dept. after we arrived at the trailhead and told to leave though the Sheriff's Dept. had not arrived yet. The times we did get the go was when it was usually above 105, Pizza Oven Hike.
