Eldorado ATV or RZR Tour with Gold Mine
Eldorado Canyon is a one of a kind destination like nothing you ever seen. On this tour you will learn about our rich gold mine history and see what the miners went through. In addition to the history of Eldorado Canyon Gold Mine you will see equipment from the late 1800’s and one of kind cars, buildings, and antiques.
Eldorado Canyon is the location of what was once the largest producing Gold Mine in Southern Nevada, the Techatticup Gold Mine. Thousands of people once lived and thrived in this area. During your included walking tour of this historic mine, you will get a glimpse of the harsh conditions these hearty miners endured in their quest for riches.
The Eldorado Canyon ATV Tour takes place on trails originally traversed by mule driven ore carts. This Las Vegas ATV Tour will let you ride on mountainous terrain, up and around incredible cactus gardens, as you follow along on a journey that the miners of the 1800’s used to seek their fortunes. The view from the top of the mesa will allow you to see the Colorado River off in the distance…once the thriving port for supplies to this area, and the port where the gold discovered in the mountains was exported.
