To get here, take US Hwy 550 (the San Juan Skyway) to Silverton. Drive down Silverton's paved main street through town. Just past the Courthouse and Museum, take a right turn onto County Road 2. Continue on CR 2 for two miles - passing the Mayflower Mill where the road becomes gravel - then two more miles to the ghost town of Howardsville. Past the "Alpine Loop" sign, cross the creek and immediately turn right onto County Road 4-A. Continue on CR 4-A 3/4 mile to the mine. Follow the blue and white "Mine Tour" directional signs that are located along the way after you leave the Silverton town limits.
