In 2018 We teamed up with Cold River Mining Co. to create an entirely new family experience on Sugarloaf Mountain! Here in our gift shop you may purchase bags of mining ‘rough’ that has been seeded with gemstones, minerals, fossils or arrowheads. Some rough contains emeralds! Miners will learn how to sluice in our barrel sluices outside, identify what they find and take home a nice collection. Entertaining and educational, gem mining is fun for all ages and is a great family activity! Reservations are highly recommended in advance as there is very limited space each evening. $20 for the whole family!
