We explore the ” Richest Square Mile on Earth” historic Gregory Diggins, ghost towns, mine ruins, Masonic graveyard and why it’s the spookiest of 11 within the district, site photo-ops, scenic views, we stop and picnic on a private gold claim to teach gold panning, 1872 mining law and the difference between public and private mining claims, sift earth treasures, walk up on old mine dumps to view mine shafts deep in the ground and why they say “stay the trail”. As a Token, I try to get in a visit to the Gilpin History Museum

Then we head west about a 30 minute drive to the Capital Prize Underground Gold Mine. Along the way you will view Historic Idaho Springs, Argo Mill, Stanley Mine, Phoenix Mine and a few small old mining towns. A guide will greet us to take you on a 45 minute Underground Gold Mine tour. Then we head back to drop you off at your vehicle.
