It was a unique and fun experience exploring the old mine. I will be back to show the kids, and let them pan for some gold.

Great for a family day trip. Not really hiking or biking material just a family friendly educational day trip.

Neat place because of the old gold mine and the history involved. Good place for families because they will let you pan for gold for a small fee and kids should get a kick out of that. Usually a Halloween event for families as well that gets a good turn out.
