Imagine the thrill of slipping into darkened caverns, voices muffled by the tunnel walls around you, seeing things only few people get to see: the inside of the Earth. That's the excitement of joining a guided tour of Sutter Creek Mine along historic State 49 south of Amador. First don a hard hat then listen as informative guides lead you deep into the earth. You'll learn about gold-panning, hydraulic mining, and the hard-rock techniques used to build these mines.
Above ground, find more fun as you search for gemstones and look for gifts in the souvenir shop. You can also try your hand at geode-cracking. You'll leave with not only your own treasures, but also a greater understanding and appreciation of the perils of gold-mining in the fascinating Gold Rush region.
Tip: Bring a sweater! Even on sweltering summer days, the mine stays relatively cool--a nice plus when temperatures climb.
