Country Boy Mine

mine

Have you ever wondered how Breckenridge got its start? With bragging rights as one of the largest and most famous gold mines in Breckenridge, the Country Boy Mine is a great place to find out!

Take an underground tour 1,000 feet into the mine. Hear stories of how Colorado miners found gold, what equipment they used, and how they worked from day to day. Try to strike it rich by participating in an afternoon of gold panning. Take a walk on the wild side and slide down the 55-foot ore chute.

While at the Country Boy Mine you will have access to all these activities and more! This makes for a fun-filled day for any age.

Tours are currently offered Monday through Sunday at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 pm. and are approximately 45 minutes long. Be sure to stop by your Activities Desk to check on availability, get a discount, and make your reservations!

BIKE TOURS:

If you aren’t sure of the trails and would like some assistance getting around, we recommend booking a mountain bike tour. These will be tailored to your skill level and will help make sure you are on trails that are appropriate for you. It is best for all riders on a tour to have around the same skill level.

Breck Bike Guides offers tours for an initial $35 and an extra $10 per person, with a maximum of five riders. You will be shown a great time with this company. Bike rentals are not included in this price, so either bring your own or rent from them. Call 970-393-9000 to set up your tour.

Either option will provide great memories and a new adventure!
