A real ghost town with lots to see. This location is only about 30 mins from Schinzel Flats Hideaway – worth the trip!  This ghost town is located in the San Juan mountains. The town sits at about 11,800 feet and was first mined about 1870. A stampede from Del Norte developed in the early 1870’s after a miner showed a piece of float gold in a local bar. By 1886 there were at least fourteen saloons operating in town. By 1893 the town was a ghost town. It did reopen for mining several times, 1907, 1930’s, and in 1948 two mills were still in operation. Finally a toxic spill, potassium cyanide,  in the early 1990’s Ended the mining. Now it is the site of a environmental cleanup.  It is open to the public from approximately middle of March through end of November.
