The English Tunnel was started in 1868 as an exploratory tunnel looking for gold bearing quartz veins.  Using dynamite, shovels & picks, miners fought their way into the heart of the mountain side.  Today the tunnel is a testament to the miner’s skill & remains in perfect condition so you can walk into the past.

 

The English Tunnel sits in a remote corner of the historic site.  Visitors on the tour are lead on a 1 mile hike - round trip -  to the tunnel where they will see the tunnel as a miner in 1870s would have seen it - by a candle!  Explore the working technique & geology then walk back to SPC.

The hike to the tunnel is 1  mile round trip across moderate slopes.  Wear good shoes & bring water.
