About the Tour
The Mines of Mount Royal bike tour starts at 9:00am. Staff will share the history of mining in Frisco and the environment alongside the early townsfolk of the area. The guided bike tour will begin at the Schoolhouse Museum and follow the Recreation Path for 2 miles of gradual uphill incline with multiple stops at the many mines along the way. Once we reach the final mine stop, participants are free to return to the Schoolhouse with Museum staff on a fully downhill route or continue up the Recreation Path towards Copper Mountain independently for further exploring.
