Fun and informative trip. It was like stepping back in time to see the old buildings and mining equipment. It is worth the short drive there.

A good place to visit to learn about the old west and gold mining. Call to make sure that the tour is running that day. Tour stops during the summer time for the hot weather.

Our group of sol and single travelers really enjoyed the informative and unique commentary by a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Both young and old should not miss this tour. Easy walking but sun protection is a must.

Seriously, it is only open on Saturday's at 9:30 am and the gates close again at 10:00 am. It would be nice if it is an "attraction" to be open more. Wasted time & effort.

You can only tour this place at 9am on Sat. We did not get into town until mid afternoon so no tour for us. Easy to find and looked cool from outside looking in.

I've been several times to the mine and each time I see more stuff than I had before. It is an interesting place to take photos. I would recommend the cooler months as the land is still pretty wild. It is interesting to visit if...More

The mine itself is closed but the area can be viewed and the old pit and surrounding equipment and location of one of the biggest, most profitable gold mines of 100 years ago is well worth taking a look at. The imagination can run wild...More
