The Gold Rush Tour was created in the 1990’s by snowmobile club pacesetter Mike Farr and fellow volunteers. This tour will take you from the wide open agriculture expanses of Temiskaming shores through the deep and rugged forests, and ecologically memorable Elk Lake, and over and along vast hydro corridors that lead to both historic and operating gold mines in Shining Tree, Timmins and Kirkland Lake.
