Gold Dredge 8Back to Excursions
Enjoy a close-up view of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and a presentation about its history and operation. Then, take a seat aboard the narrow-gauge Tanana Valley Railroad and hear the conductor tell tales of prospectors who arrived by the thousands during the gold rush. The train ride takes you to Gold Dredge 8 where you will see firsthand how the dredge worked the gold fields. Once the train arrives at the camp, local miners will give a brief but informative course in mining and then you will try panning for yourself! You will find gold—we guarantee it! Explore the dredge camp and enjoy complimentary coffee and fresh-baked cookies in the gift shop as your gold is weighed then hop aboard the train and return to the station.
