“One of the largest and most famous gold mines”
In the midst of the majestic Rocky Mountains, the Country Boy Mine was one of the largest and most famous gold mines in Breckenridge, Colorado. Today, we invite you to visit the Country Boy Mine and enjoy the many activities the mine has to offer. Join us for a mine tour into a real gold mine at this historic restored mining site. While at the mine you can also gold pan, pet the burros, slide down the 55 foot ore chute, explore the authentic mine site, view the exhibits and equipment that were used in the mine and visit the general store. Families have been enjoying this historical landmark and the Country Boy Mine tour for almost 20 years. Voted one of the best things to do in Breckenridge!
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.
So much fun for the kids!! This was a great afternoon
