Visit Online


This three-mile guided hike takes you to the ghost town of Preston, which more than 130 years ago was a bustling center of approximately 150 residents, a post office, shops, and a school.

Learn about the town’s history, the many rich mines that operated in the area, and what led to Preston’s demise. See the remains of the Jessie Mill, the area’s best surviving example of a stamp mill where ore was processed before being shipped away.
