Aspen Leaf Self-Guided Tours

The Self-Guided Aspen Leaf Tours, brought to us by the 2-Mile-High Club and Gold Camp Association have launched! Guide packets will be available for a $10 minimum donation at Victor’s Artist Co-Op and the Cripple Creek Heritage Center. The packets include everything you need to experience an excellent tour of the changing aspens in and around Victor, Goldfield, and Cripple Creek, including a map of exceptional photo-ops and educational stops along the Gold Camp area loop. Packets will be available from 10am-4pm – depending on traffic and availability – on Saturday and Sunday October 1-2.

Locals are urged to plan for slower drive times, extended luncheons, and busier shops as we share our extraordinary views and businesses with visitors.
