The Little Pine Gem Mine At Sandy Bottom Trail Rides near Asheville,NC

The Little Pine Gem Mine

Come explore the historic two hundred year old Little Pine Gem Mine located on our property. Our three and four hour rides feature a visit to the mine, either on horseback or by wagon the way the pioneers did years ago.

Upon arrival at Little Pine, you will have a chance to dig for garnets and explore the mine. The garnets are gem quality and you can keep whatever you find!
