Abandoned Mines - El Dorado

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Please note that this event will include a hike along old, partly overgrown  miner's trails and hopefully exploring an abandoned gold mine.
    This is an exploration trip, so you MUST have the proper gear!! Do yourself a favor and wear jeans or rugged long pants that will protect you from getting cut and scratched on branches and plants.
    It is very easy to get injured or dehydrated in this environment. Plan and pack for the worst case scenario.

    If you choose to enter any abandoned mines or caves, you do so at your own risk.

    Recommended Gear: PLENTY of water, food, headlight with extra batteries, backup flashlight, jeans or rugged long pants, dust mask(for mine crawling), gloves

    Difficulty: 7/10

    Approx. Time: ALL DAY

    Approx. Distance: 3-4 miles

    First Timer RSVP's limited to 1 for this event.
    Senior Members get RSVP priority.

    We will meet at the back of the Starbucks parking lot and leave promptly at 8:15am so please be on time! Any cars left behind will be left in the Target parking lot across the street.

    Feel free to contact me at[masked]

    There are hundreds of abandoned mines and prospects throughout San Diego county. I plan to find and explore as many as possible so watch out for lots of future trips on the calendar.
    This Trip: El Dorado
    _ _ _ _

    The location of the mine is a relatively short distance from the 78 and there is no way to tell if it is still open or caved in. Let's find out. If it's closed, we can still get in some good climbing and hiking.

    I'm out, flying home from Paris Friday...
    Probably be an anchor, or at least slightly unstable. Neither would be fair to the group.
