Country Boy Mine
Country Boy Mine offers guests a sneak peak into the life of 18th century pioneers by taking them on a series of fun-filled tours. Start the day by going on the "Underground Mine Adventure" where you can travel a thousand feet into the mine and discover for yourself the history of Colorado mining. Next, try panning for gold in the Eureka Creek. Wrap up your day by having dinner and going on a sleigh ride that will take you through the Ten Mile Mountain Range. Check website for price listings.
I have been on several gold mine tours in my 45 years, and the Country Boy Mine is the most realistic and authentic! This historical attraction is just that, they take you back in time to the 1880's and you get to see, feel, hear and almost experinece what it was like to be a miner. The mine was cold, wet, dark, and a little intimidating. No sugar coating here - it was real!
The new owner gave our family a tour and he gauranteed that at the end of the tour, no one in our group will want to be an 1880's gold miner - and he was right! I wanted to know how you bought a gold mine, but was told us that is another story.
