If you are a scouting group (such as Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Venture Scouts), we offer a special group rate of groups of 15 or more people. Scheduling should be made in advance to receive this rate and is based on availability. If you are studying a special badge or requirement, please be certain to let us know, so that we may tailor your visit to your needs.

Here is what is included in a group rate and the list of activities:
  • Watch an 18 minute documentary of the history of the gold mining & the property. 
  • Tour the museum. 
  • See a demonstration of the 1858 stamp mill.
  • Pan for gemstones. All guests will end up with a bag of gemstones to take home.  
  • Guided tour of the nature trails, ruins of the old gold mine and the Live Farm Animal Exhibit (weather permitting). 
  • Ride the Pine Mountain Scenic Railroad, which offers a scenic train ride around the mountain, taking in all of the views.
  • Where appropriate, the tour guide can tailor your tour to meet the specific requirements. See attached guideline for potential Cub Scout & Boy Scout Achievements. Picnic area for you to bring a picnic lunch and/or for your group to gather.
  • You should plan for about 2 ½ – 3 hours for our part, plus the time to eat.


Only $9 per person (normally $14-15 per person.) If you choose to exclude the train, the group rate will reduce to $6 per person.
