The Heritage Silver Trail
The Heritage Silver Trail winds its way through town and along the far side of Cobalt Lake. It was established to halt the decay of many area landmarks that attest to the glory days of the once booming silver mining camp which extends well beyond Cobalt’s municipal boundaries, into and through the Townships of Coleman, Bucke, Lorrain and the Gillies Limit. Many of the once famous mine sites are still there, some almost intact in the middle of the wilderness. Other sites would require some archeological skills to locate. Many of the structures are immense and cause one to wonder at the effort and engineering involved in developing such sites.
You may obtain a trail guide book or just a map at the Mining Museum to direct you through this self-guided tour. In the summer season, guided tours may be arranged through the Cobalt Mining Museum. These should be booked in advance.
