Experience life as a miner with the Hopemore Underground Mine Tour, one of the last mine tours available in Colorado. Owner, and former underground mine worker, Bob Calder, takes visitors 600 feet underground in a cage similar to what mines used many years ago. Once there, Bob tells vivid stories about Leadville’s mining history while demonstrating the use of historic mining tools.
This intimate and unique one-hour tour is not to be missed. Reservations are required and can be made by calling ahead. Visitors are advised to wear closed toed shoes and bring warm clothes because the mine’s temperature can drop as low as 40° underground. Please note that children under the age of ten are not allowed.
