Apparently I like this tour; I've taken it three times! It's better than other mine tours I have taken because of the demonstrations of real, loud, working equipment. I especially like the mine cart with a scoop to pick up and load ore. Each visit,...More

First of all this mine is not a few minutes from Silverton it is in fact 5 miles most of which is along an inpaved road. The ride along the road has some beautiful scenery but it is a slow ride depending on your vehicle....More

When someone recommended this tour we didn't know what to expect. We rode our OHV up and were totally blown away by this tour. You have to put on a rain jacket and helmet to ride the mine train down 1/3 mile into the mountain....More

Very good, authentic mine experience, with a former miner as the guide. I really appreciated that we were able to ride the rail car actually into the mine; it was much easier to experience just a bit of the hard conditions that miners endured. Dan,...More

We had a great time on this tour and it was cool to learn about how the miners actually worked a vein. Definitely make sure you're wearing closed toe shoes as it's wet and you'll be walking through muddy spots. I also would recommend wearing...More

Friendly knowledgeable tour guides. Go in the mine in ore carts to see a fulling functioning mine. Good to see what all the equipment is used for! Great for any age!!

The Old Hundred Mine tour is a good opportunity to see some aspects of underground mining. As a geologist, I've been underground many times, but haven't been able to take my children with me before. This is a great opportunity to take your children to...More

I don't know about the pass. I think it was $18 for adults and we paid Senior rate which was $16. I don't think that was excessive for an hour tour in the mine with the train ride in and out and demonstration of tools... More

Probably not doable in one day. Also, you will want to make reservations for tours at Mesa Verde.

We arranged for the mine guide to pick us up a couple blocks from the train station and take us to the mine. You may want to contact them and see if they will do the same for you.
