Buck Rock Tunnel is really not a mine but an aborted railroad tunnel which was started in the early 1880's and stopped about 6-7 months later when the railroad changed owners. The tunnels were started from opposite sides and one is rather short, 50 feet deep, because of the necessity of digging a grade leading up to it. The opposite side is approximately 250 feet deep and far more interesting. The tunnels were dug by Chinese laborers who worked with dangerous black powder instead of TNT. Today, the deep tunnel is accessed by climbing up and then down into it because of the mountain eroding down over the entry.
