Completely unexpected pleasure. A local resident walking his dog told us how the community is coming together to ensure the history of this incredible place is not lost. To think that at the turn of the last century, the largest gold mine was built there...More

We loved seeing all the actual mine equipment left in it's original state, and the signs are very informative without putting you to sleep. Nice trails, and the beach is nice, too.

We started the self-tour at Sandy Beach, which is not the official starting point, but it worked for us. We walked the wide paved path in the woods next to the beach and the placards were succinct and effectively highlighted the ruins from the Treadwell...More
