Compromise Mine/Smuggler Mine
The Compromise Mine is located on the front side of Aspen Mountain; a 4WD vehicle takes visitors up to the mine. On the tour, visitors ride 2,000 feet underground in tour cars behind an electric mine locomotive, through some of the largest open underground chambers in the world.
The Smuggler Mine, listed on the National Historic Register, is a walking tour that takes visitors 1,200 feet into Smuggler Mountain and visits two levels of the mine workings. The world’s largest silver nugget was found at the Smuggler Mine in 1894.
