Banner Mine is located outside of Lowman. The mine is mostly just a large tailing pile. We walked about 3 miles from the Elkhorn Yurt in the winter. I would not recommend this as a way for most people to access this mine. There was considerable avalanche danger and required some route finding to get there safely. In the summer, you will be able to access this mine directly from the road at the base of the mine.
This mine is located outside of Lowman, ID on highway 21. We stayed at Elkhorn Yurt and walked about three miles directly to the mine. I would not recommend this route. I’ve included our Strava recording below in case you are as crazy as we were.
