Què faràs?

All groups will meet at the Historic Victor School for a brief orientation and overview of the Hiking Tour. We will then head to downtown Victor to visit the buildings built in 1899 and to hear stories of boom and bust in the raucus gold mining town. Next, we will hike onto the Award Winning "Trails of Gold" and Battle Mountain, home to the world famous mines above Victor, including the Independence and Portland. More gold came out of the Battle Mountain mines than the Alaska and California gold rushes combined. Yes! There is a chance that you will be able to pick up a sample of the mining district's gold ore along the way! Your tour will continue along abandoned railroad grades with scenic vistas and tales of millionaires and gold mines lost and found again. The tour ends with a downhill trek through "The Ruins" to the Victor School and the conclusion of the hiking tour.

I have been leading hikes as part of various Summer Camp programs for 35+ years. A history buff, my wife and I purchased the Historic Victor High School building in 2007 as a home for our Rocky Mountain Soccer Camps. In the 13 years we have lived in Victor, CO, I have been immersed in the amazing history of the "World's Greatest Gold Camp" and have led our campers on countless history hikes over the years. I have been asked on numerous occasions to guide dignified guests of the City of Victor on history tours and have participated in many historical tours hosted by the Southern Teller County Focus Group, of which I am a Board Member. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests and equally enjoy the opportunity to hike in the great outdoors amongst historical structures and spectacular scenery!

On aniràs?

"Trails of Gold Trekking Tours" take place in and around the "World's Greatest Gold Camp" and the scenic, historic town of Victor, Colorado. Known as "The City of Mines," Victor is part of the world's 5th richest mining district and in the 1890's, its streets were literally paved with gold. Victor once boasted a population of 18,000 people and was the boyhood home of world renowned broadcaster and journalist Lowell Thomas.
