Covering close to three times the length of our Trammer's Tour, this 1-hour 20-min. hike provides experiences you won't soon forget! This tour incorporates all of the Trammer's experiences and much more. Enter by the No. 1 adit and see solid pieces of native copper weighing hundreds of pounds left behind by earlier miners. Walk through the largest rooms of the mine and past shafts to lower levels. Helmets and headlamps are provided. Some limited maneuvering through low spots is required. Trails are rough with uneven footing. A light jacket and good walking shoes are recommended. Allow at least one and a half hours of time for this tour. We suggest a minimum age of 8 years old.
The mission of the Adventure Mining Company is to provide a location where visitors to the area can experience the life of a copper miner in the most realistic, historically accurate, and exciting way possible, and through these experiences learn the history of the area and the stories of those who lived here.
Also at the Adventure Mine site are miles of free-use hiking and mountain biking trails. Enjoy a hike or ride through the forest by old foundations and early prospect pits or even up to the top of Adventure Bluff on some of the most unique and challenging single-track trails in the Midwest. If you're up to the challenge, be sure to join us in mid-July for the annual Miner's Revenge Mountain Bike Race. The only race of its kind, you will first ride over the mountain and then ride through it! One third of a mile of the race course is underground in the Adventure Mine, so be sure to bring a light!
Valid for (1) adult admission of the Prospector's Underground Tour.
