Great place to stop and get a feeling for what a miner's life might have been like. Great views, interesting relics of era and an opportunity to tour the mine itself.

This is a MUST when we n the Creede area! Amazing views, friendly staff, amazing mine, beautiful and affordable jewelry! We had a great time! A little tricky driving up there and back down but certainly worth the time!
