San Juan Backcountry ~ Silverton Historical and Old Mine Tour

San Juan Backcountry ~ Silverton Historical and Old Mine Tour ~ Adult

Description

Although the mines of the San Juans are now silent, take a step back in time and experience what it must have been like to be a miner in these rugged mountains many years ago. The underground world of hard rock mining is rarely seen by outsiders.

Come join San Juan Backcountry with a fascinating historical tour of Silverton, Colorado. You will begin at the San Juan Backcountry Headquarters. As you go through town, your guide will acquaint you with the historical sites along the way up to Cunningham Gulch and the Old Hundred Gold Mine.

Sack lunch is provided at the mine, followed by panning for gold and silver. Pocket your treasures and shortly before noon you will "suit up" in rain gear for a tour of the underground mine workings; deep below Galena Mountain. The Mine Tour is from 12-1pm.

After returning to the surface, you will continue the historical journey by viewing the Old Hundred Boarding House that still clings stubbornly to the high, steep side of the mountain. Don't forget your camera and binoculars!

As you return to town, your tour guide will point out the Mayflower Mill and describe the way gold ore was processed in the late 19th century. Finally, you will be dropped off at Silverton's Mining Museum and its historic jail. (THE MUSEUM IS NOT INCLUDED, AND IS A SEPARATE FEE OF $8 PAID TO THE MUSEUM) You'll feel like you've stepped back in time as you view numerous historic artifacts. Slip into jail and feel what it was like to be "behind bars" in the old town of Silverton.

Don't be late for your 2:30pm or 3pm train ride back to Durango!
