If you are a person who has admirations for ghost town then Forest city is an ideal destination for you. The area was once the most expensive smelters in the entire territory. However, in due course of time, the city was abandoned due to severe climatic hazards and closing down of factories. The site still holds the old houses of yesteryears and the smelter. The forest city now has informative signs in its various areas highlighting the bygone years of the town and one of its chief cemetery.

Love 4wd'ng this area. Great trails everywhere.
Pretty area with amazing cliff mountains, but definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We went here on a weekend in the middle of the summer and it was almost too crowded on the first section. There are lots of sections where the road is only wide enough for one vehicle, for there are cliffs on both sides and you hold your breath that you don't run into anyone coming the other direction or it will be terrifying to back up. We headed to this area to see Pittsburgh lake. You can't get all the way to the lake on the road. You still have to get out and hike the last few miles. The Miller mine area though is facinating that they did really great mining this area until the area became toxic because of the chemicals in the water.
