Description
A hanging flume was built in the late 1880's to bring water from the San Miguel River to the Lone Tree Placer Gold Mine. It is constructed about 40 feet over the Dolores River, attached to the sandstone walls, because technology did not exist at that time to pump water up from the Dolores in quantity and at high enough pressure. Remnants of the seven mile long flume still cling to the canyon walls.
