Take a deep dive into the Rocky Mountains at Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine to find out more about the fascinating history of Colorado's gold rush days. Discovered by Mollie Kathleen Gortner in 1891, the mine produced gold for decades until 1961, when it was closed and turned into a seasonal tourist attraction. Don your hard hat and start your tour by descending 300 m (1,000 ft) underground. As you follow your miner/guide you'll see real gold veins and historic mining equipment. Finally, you'll get to ride aboard the air-powered tram-air locomotive. Back on the surface, more historic equipment and outbuildings wait to be explored.
