Things to Explore

Ochoco Mines

Hidden all over the Ochocos are numerous mines.  Historical reports state there were once over 1,ooo mines in the Ochocos that bore cinnabar, gold and thundereggs.  Today, less than 50 are still open.

The most frequented mines are the Mother Lode Mine and Independent Mine.  Neither of these locations are currently maintained, but a great place to visit and imagine activities of the past.  The Blue Ridge Mine is also a popular attraction for those wanting to explore these sites.
