Anyone know how to get to it? Also if you know of any other stuff like that let me know. My dad is really wanting to see it and the radar base.

What are you calling Coal Mine #1? is it a working mine? I know there is the old mine on trail 13 where you can still see a couple of entrances that are faced up.

It is supposed to be the first mine they done. We found it off of G1. Really cool still has the rails going down into.

That's a cool video. Lots of interesting stuff up there you never knew about. Where did you find the mine #1 at? I'd like to check it out sometime.

Run up the pavement and turn onto G1 once your on G1 you will go to the 2nd turn off to your right. It immediately turn back and runs parallel with G1 so it's easy to miss. There will also be a gas rig(big green tanks etc...) At the entrance. Run that gravel road to the end, it will be a concrete pad with the old rails in it and the mine is to the back rite. You will see where people have been pulling into the weeds. They have tried to cover it up but you can still see into it.

Thanks Bacon! I know right where your talking about. I never went down there just figured it only went to another gas well. I'll be sure and check it out next time I'm up there.

No problem. Also if you go out on g40 about a mile or so there is 3 in a roll on the right side of the road.
