Explore the Mine Site
While visiting the historic Country Boy Mine site you can examine the original mining equipment, take a ponder at the old photographs, & have fun with the exhibits to revisit the past and marvel at days gone by.
Stroll Through the Original Buildings
Wander through the restored buildings that include the Compressor House and Blacksmith Shop and be amazed that these buildings withstood 400 plus inches of snow on their roofs year after snowy year!
See the Original Equipment
We are fortunate to have some of the original equipment used at the Country Boy Mine during the Colorado Gold Rush.

On the walking park read the information about French Gulch, the historic valley where the Country Boy Mine is located. Learn about the Wellington Mine with 18 miles of underground mining tunnels, learn about the largest gold mass ever found, named Tom’s Baby and view the rocks from those banging dredge boats!
Admire the Views
