Join an exclusive tour into the copper mine located in the Tom Mays Unit of Franklin Mountains State Park. We’ll unlock the gate at the mine shaft entrance and take a small group into this mysterious mine shaft for a tour to learn about the geology and history of El Paso and the Franklins. No climbing is necessary, just one tight squeeze to enter the mine.
Three tours times are offered on Saturday, January 17 - 10am, noon and 2pm.
The mine is just a short 1/4-mile hike from the parking lot.
