Julian Train & Gold Mine Tour
“All aboard the Smith Ranch & Julian Railroad”

Saturday, January 29, 2011
2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Experience the historic side of Julian you’ve never seen before as you ride on our 18″ gauge mining train. Beautiful scenery abounds on the 1-mile round trip as you cross over two trestle bridges and negotiate a 225 degree curve to disembark at the real Smith Ranch 1870 Julian gold rush mine. While exploring the mine, you’ll see pick marks made in the rock 140 years ago. Keep an eye out for the quartz veins that led to the gold. Those who wish may ride into the Smith Ranch mine in our 1898 mine car and later try their hand at panning gold nuggets. It’s all part of the tour.

Train departs at 2:30 p.m.

Train tour is 1.5 hours in length.
