Soudan Underground Mine State Park
This park, and the awesome tours within, is a must-see stop while visiting the Range. Just 24 miles from Virginia, the Underground Mine makes a great day trip from the area. Travel 1/2-mile underground in an elevator and board an ore car for a guided tour of the former mine. Tour guides do a fabulous job of educating and entertaining visitors. Dress warmly! It’s chilly down there. The scientist in your group might enjoy a trip into the high energy physics lab, a separate but equally fascinating tour.
