The Peru Creek drainage is rich in mining history with numerous underground mine shafts, so be careful where you walk. Historic relics are most meaningful in their natural settings so please leave items where they lay so others may enjoy them. At the beginning of this trail you will walk through some wet areas with willows and then start to climb up talus slopes dotted with fragile alpine flowers. Spectacular views are enjoyed from both sides of the Continental Divide upon reaching the summit of Argentine Pass. This trail originated as a wagon road in 1867 connecting towns on the western slope of the Continental Divide with the eastern slope towns.
