Cripple Creek, Colorado
Cripple Creek, Colorado

   The town of Cripple Creek is an important part of the history of the area. Situated on the southwestern slope of Pikes Peak, the area is most famous for being part of the Gold Rush in the late 1800s – early 1900s. The first homesteaders began to settle in the area in the mid-1800s and in 1890 Bob Womack discovered gold, which changed Cripple Creek forever. Over 22 million ounces  of gold (worth over $300 million) were extracted from 500 mines in the Cripple Creek mining district between 1890-1910. This mine is still in operation today!

   Today, the town is popular with tourists for the beautiful scenery, tons of recreation and limited stakes gambling. There is dining, shopping, and lodging – from small cabins to hotels to luxurious B&Bs. If you are interested in learning more about the rich history of the area, you will find several museums. Looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the area? You can enjoy hiking, biking, camping, hunting, snow & water sports and more.  There is a working railroad and a popular gold mine tour that will take you 1000 feet underground!
