Miner'S Delight

Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming.

In a beautiful spot near the Continental Divide in central Wyoming, Miner's Delight is a silent witness to the heyday of Wyoming's gold mining era. One of the state's earliest communities--gold was discovered there in 1868--the BLM-managed ghost town yields important clues about the early history of Wyoming and the gold mining culture. There is a rugged walking path through the site, interpretive kiosk at the entrance, and interpretive panels within the site. It is not ADA accessible.
