Great town to visit just for the trail. It is spread out and best bicycled or driven to and walked around at various sites. Really interesting.

" In a unique outdoor museum in the town of Cobalt, Ontario, visitors can trace the steps of silver miners at the turn of the century. The 20 sites on the Heritage Silver Trail offer an insight into the working conditions endured by miners at the Cobalt Mining Camp after the discovery of rich silver ore deposits in 1903. Visitors touring the Heritage Silver Trail explore firsthand mine headframes, mill sites, adits, mined surface silver veins and a display of original mining equipment at Site #14 (the Willet Green Miller Memorial Site) and at Site #20 (the Jack Koza Memorial Park) beside Cobalt Lake. "
