The Lost Silver Mine of Searcy County is a story that goes back over 100
years ago. Rumor has it that a once prosperous silver mine in the Ozarks
was lost in time as the result of varying fortunes of war between the
Spaniards and Native Americans. The Lost Silver
Mine Run travels through an area that just may have been
home to this mine. While this is our longest ride, it offers many
opportunities for you to stop and take in a view or grab a bite in
one of the many small towns along the route.
