Five trails have been developed by the Focus Group on CC&V property. The Focus Group is responsible for maintenance of the trails and for signage that provides valuable information about the historical and modern mining in the area.

The intent of CC&V’s donation program is to support and contribute to the communities in which we live, play, and work and to provide visibility for the CC&V, our operations and our employees.
