  • Lots of fun! You will get a little wet from water dripping from the ceiling of the mine but they provide rain jackets and hard hats to help keep you dry. Dress warm though because the mine is 47 degrees and you'll be down there for 45 minutes or so. Our tour guide gave lots of info about various mining machinery and what life was like for the miners.
  • The Old Hundred Gold Mine trip was really awesome. I would recommend a Jeep or Ranger, or some type of fourwheeler or side by side. You will not regret it if you are interested in amazing views!
