One Hundred Gold Mine offers guided tours hourly, during the May to October season. It’s located in a scenic section of the San Juans, fifteen minutes from historic Silverton.
The tour begins as you ride in a miner’s “mantrip” 1/3 mile underground. From there you and your tour group explore on foot with a guide. You’ll follow the original tunnels and gold vein while learning how mining was done.
