Old Hundred Guided Mine Tour
Easy walking • No climbing • Well Lighted • State Inspected
Chosen "Colorado's Best Mine Tour!
Although the mines of the San Juan's are now silent, take a step back in time and experience what it must have been like to be a miner in the San Juan's many years ago. The underground world of hard rock mining is rarely seen by outsiders.
Go "on shift" and see the earth from inside out. This one hour guided tour via tram and easy walking takes you a 1/3 of a mile into Galena Mountain at 10,000 feet above sea level, where you will follow the vein and learn how hard rock mining was done. Your experienced "miner guide" will demonstrate authentic mining equipment used back in mining's heyday!
Enjoy the breathtaking scenery on your journey to the Old Hundred Mine and after your tour try your luck panning for gold (FREE!) at the mine's sluice box.
