Your adventure to the Surebridge and Greenwood Mines starts at the Lake Skannatati/Askoti parking lot.

Take the red triangle-white-blazed trail and follow the waypoints to their destination. There are eight mine openings at the Surebridge Mine site. The Surebridge Mine was so active during the Civil War to extract iron ore. The waypoint marked (thingy) is one of the few remaining historic traces where one can see an iron rod embedded in the stone.

After visiting the Surebridge Mine and as you continue on the unmarked path, you will see some huge piles of mine tailings before you reach the Appalachian Trail Marker (white mark- ing on tree). The Greenwood Mine is on your right, adjacent to the trail. Hard to miss. Regrettably the Greenwood Mine is submerged under water and it’s length may be best explored in frozen temperatures with proper gear. In the summer months it seems pretty bottomless.

There are several exploratory pits and shafts filled with water at the Greenwood Mine site. This mine was opened in 1838 and last worked in 1880.
