Hike Into History: Bear Creek
October 6 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM MDT$10 – $20
Take a hike up this classic trail with Rudy Davison and experience Bear Creek like you have never seen it before. You’ll weave through avalanche paths and explore the ruins of an old ore processing mill. The hike will begin at the Bear Creek trailhead and end at the bottom of the falls. You’ll learn about the mining history of this drainage including the Nellie Mine and San Miguel Consolidated Gold Mining Company.
If you are unfamiliar with Bear Creek it is a moderate to steep hike, but isn’t too long. Come prepared for all weather (sun, rain, cold, etc) and bring water and snacks. The hike will depart from the Bear Creek trailhead at 9:00 a.m. Please call the museum at 970-728-3344 to reserve your spot.
