Mining History of the Cerrillos Hills

Cerrillos Amigos would like to share a video we think everyone would enjoy. In the Mining History of the Cerrillos Hills, historian Bill Baxter describes the beginnings of the area's first mines. Cerrillos Hills State Park contains a little over 5 miles of trails and is located on the southern edge of the Cerrillos mining district.
