|On the other side of the tunnel, the pavement ends and the Lakeshore Trail begins (it continues for 35 miles to Fontana Dam!). The Goldmine Loop Trail starts about a half mile past the tunnel on the left (look for the sign). Pass the first trail on the left, the Tunnel Bypass trail that takes you to campsite 67. A short distance beyond is the Goldmine Loop Trail on the left. Turn here and head down a ridge to an old homestead with the remains of the chimney. From there, continue on to follow a cascading Goldmine Branch through a forest. In about a half mile, you see the other end of the trail to campsite 67 on the left. Continue straight ahead along the branch for another quarter mile for to a view of a cove of Fontana Lake. From there, take the trail uphill for a long and strenuous climb. In about a mile, you`ll reach the intersection of the Tunnel Bypass Trail (and the end of Goldmine Loop Trail). Bear right at sign that says "parking 4/10 of a mile" to return to parking area. Or for a longer way back, turn left on the Bypass Trail to return to the Lakeshore Trail and walk back through the tunnel.
