Learn About Our Historic Hiking Trails

Throughout the 1800s, gold prospectors traveled across high passes and low paths to help carve out the trails we know today. Other relics of days past — from Ghost towns, to gold camps, to silver mines — can be seen while trekking along. In Clear Creek, hiking through nature also means hiking through history.
