About This Adventure

When you have two days or more to enjoy your Polaris Slingshot rental, consider this itinerary, which covers 266 miles in and out-and-back loop. Step back in time to get a glimpse into gold mining on this fun itinerary centered on Sumpter Valley Dredge State Heritage Area. From May through October, you’ll be welcomed aboard the dredge, which ran almost continuously from 1935 to 1954, dredging up $4 million in gold, and helping to sustain the local economy. On weekends, park rangers present gold panning demonstrations, and visitors can even pan for their own gold. The town of Sumpter Valley is nestled at the base of the majestic Elkhorn Mountain Range.  

No matter where you choose to stop and spend time, you'll see that the entire drive is gorgeous. If you’d like to make it an overnight trip and stay in Sumpter, the team at Owyhee Slingshot Rentals recommends the family-friendly Depot Inn.  

Rentals periods are 12 and 24 hours.
