Wood River Placer Mine – Sun Valley, ID

Spring Creek

This Wood River placer mine is located right off of highway 75 and just south of Galena Lodge. There isn’t really anything to see at this mine since a placer mine usually is just sifting through sand and rocks. This particular mine is located in a very beautiful valley and is a popular backcountry ski destination. We followed skin tracks. You will need snow shows to walk to this mine.



This mine is located within a quarter mile of highway 75. In the winter, there is a pull out for cars across the road from the creek.
