Frisco Ghost Town is arguably the most famous ghost town in Utah. From 1875 through the 1890's, Frisco was well-known for having the richest silver mine in the country, as well as its wild-west reputation. It is said to have had two to five murders and/or shootouts per day. At its peak, it was home to 6,000 residents, 21 saloons, hotels, gambling halls, its own newspaper and a red light district. By 1885, it had earned over $60,000,000 in mining profits from zinc, copper, lead, silver and gold.
There are not many standing structures left today, save for the charcoal kilns. There is still active mining in the area and much of the area is private property. Please be respectful while traversing to access the GeoTour cache and stay on used roadways. The roadways are dirt and just below the cache site it follows an old rail grade. You could take the rental car on it if confident and careful, or opt to make the walk from just off the highway, adding an addition 1/4 - 1/2 mile to the find.
Take a moment while at the cache site to look around and see what remains of Frisco Mining Town.
