Silver Mines Recreation Area

Back in the 1920s this area was mined for silver and tungsten ore.  Although long since played out, the remnants of two old abandoned mines are present at the site.  Located on the banks of the St. Francis River, Silver Mines is near Millstream Gardens where whitewater enthusiasts from around the world bring their kayaks to enjoy the challenges of the river in March, during spring high water.  There is a one-mile long trail along each side of the river. From Turkey Creek Picnic Area, a 1.2 mile trail to the north leads to Millstream Garden Conservation Area, managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation.  It's a beautiful place to toss your hook into the water!  Camping is also available at Silver Mines. From Ironton take Hwy 72 east to Hwy D. Go about 3 miles south on D to paved Forest Road 2510. You'll see the Forest Service sign.
