Details

From Colorado River Trailhead trek La Poudre Pass Trail to historic 1879 Lulu City. This ghost town located in the Kawuneeche Valley in the shadow of the Never Summer Range is rich in early mining history of Colorado. Observe remnants of cabins and mines of this era. The colorful wildflowers and spectacular scenery are extra bonuses. Excellent chance for seeing large animals.
