Soudan Underground Mine Tour

Mine visitors with naturalist in stope.

The tour will take you 1/2 mile down into the earth on a cage similar to the one the miners used in earlier days. Once underground, you will take a 3/4 mile train ride to the last and deepest area mined.

Plan 1.5 hours for the tour. Bring a warm coat or sweater. Closed-toed shoes are recommended. Close space for the three-minute ride down into the mine and two narrow spiral staircases.
