    Default Identifying Carbon River National Park Mine help needed

    This is an old hard rock mine just off the Carbon River Road past the Mt. Rainier Park entrance in Washington State. I have seen it referred to as the "old mine trail". This mine is in the vicinity of the Surprise Mines and Blue Star mine group and probably dates back to 1902. Previously this mine had been sealed by boards over the entire entrance with no access or view inside the mine. Recently the NPS replaced the entrance with a grate so you can walk into the tunnel several feet and see into the tunnel and track remnants clearly.Attachment 6536 Attachment 6535

    Does anyone know what the name or any information about this mine?
