We stopped to take a short snowshoe hike up this beautiful Valley on our way to Leadville. There are old mining era buildings still remaining above treeline. The trail is not steep and plenty wide enough for both skiers and snowshoers.
From the trailhead near Mile Marker 16 of SH 91, it's about an hour walk up to a fork in the road. One fork takes you toward Atlantic Peak and some interesting mining ruins from the early 20th Century. This is a place to not step on steel or wood lying on the ground that could be a cover of... 更多
Loved this hike, not to strenuous and when it opened up there were old cabins. The old buildings lent to great pictures using the old buildings with the mountain as a back drop. My pictures turned out wonderful !!!!!

Silver and gold were the attraction back in 1900, but now the tourists are hiking in because of the scenery and... 更多
We stopped here on a whim on the way back to Denver from Leadville, and boy are we glad we did! The mining area in a beautiful mountain amphitheatre was stunning enough, but then we took the jeep trail up to the right which led us to the top of Gold Hill. The views here were incredible - the pure... 更多
