Discover the Pinto Wye Arrastra

December 8 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Enjoy a slow-paced, all cross-country hike over lightly undulating terrain to an historic mining related mill site, known as an arrastra. This arrastra, the only surviving one in the Park was used to mill gold ore in to a final product that could then be sold to the United States Mint or used to purchase other goods or services.
The wooden arrastra, which was probably built and used in the 1930s, has been partially restored and maintained by the Park service and is on the National Registry of Historic Places.
