Mining History by Jeep
You may know about the Smuggler Mine, but did you know there are even more silver mines above that? The remnants of several of them can be found beyond the observation deck on Smuggler Mountain, and our new tour, the Smuggler Mt. Open Space Historic Jeep and Trail Tour, will take visitors to these by jeep and on foot. The best part is that the tour is free, but offered on a limited basis (Wednesdays, 9 a.m.) and to six people, so make your reservations early by calling (970)925-3721. It runs June 18-Sept. 3
Details: Access Smuggler Mountain via jeep for an interpretive tour exploring the history of the silver mining era. Guests will be transported, by jeep, up Smuggler Mountain Road, then tour on foot the remains of several silver mines. Offered in partnership with Blazing Adventures and City of Aspen Open Space and Trails.
Hours: Wednesday, 9-11 a.m. (Arrive 8:45 a.m.) Maximum 6 people, for ages 8 and up.
