A number of the Park's Heritage Sites offer ways to experience the underground. Please contact the specific sites for more information:
Adventure Mine offers a variety of guided tours. All guests are furnished with a hard hat and headlamp. There are no other lights underground.Trails underground are sometimes rough so wear appropriate footwear.
Following an introductory video, you will select a hard hat and walk down the stairs through the #1 Shaft, just as the miners did. As you enter the first level of the mine, you will step back in time, as you learn how a mine operated in the mid- to late 1800s.
Travel down the hill on Quincy's cograil tram, then into the mine's 7th level, approximately 350' underground. Also included is a tour of the world's largest steam hoist, and the #2 Shaft-rockhouse.
