The High Country offers a range of activities and attractions for all ages. Many of these can be found on this page and also down the bottom of most Towns/Resorts pages where we have a link taking you to the Activities and Attractions of that location.
Prospecting for gold and gemstones is a fun activity that is generally done with gold pans or metal detectors. These days, over 160 years since gold was first discovered in many parts of the High Country, prospecting can still bring exciting rewards. A permit called a Miner’s Right, is required and costs less than a few dollars a year. Children under 18 don’t need a Miner’s Right if they are accompanied by an adult holding a Miner’s Right.
