We offer a variety of interpretive programs and special exhibits year-round. One mile of well-preserved ruts lie on the Interpretive Center grounds, and are accessible by the trails or from a turnout on Highway 86 about a half-mile west of the Center's entrance.

“Great Variety”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Whether you want to walk through indoor interactive (and some hands-on) displays or do some hiking to see the actual trails and the great views of the surrounding area, the center offers it all. Don't miss some of the outside displays like the mine shaft.
