After the underground tour, we spent some time panning in the river for gold, just like the original gold panners. It’s amazing they didn’t freeze their fingers off, that water was very cold and we were gold panning in July, not December.

The hike itself is short and has lots of old mine equipment on display to break up the walking. The Iowa Hill Mine Trail was my 8 –year-old’s favorite hike.
