The views are worth a million bucks!

Your guide will acquaint you with many of the fascinating sights in the historic district of Silverton including a view of the Mayflower Mill Cemetery. You’ll soon be on your way to Cunningham Gulch and the Old 100 Gold Mine. At the picnic area enjoy the views, the fresh air and a freshly-made picnic lunch.
