Vindicator Valley - Abandoned Mines & Derelict Mine Shafts

submitted by DerelictDoug on 11/09/19 1

Underneath these Abandoned Mines, over 3-Million dollars of Gold were once raised from the Earth. Along the 2-mile loop trail, the land is littered with the remains of abandoned mines & shafts; the remnants of a collection of mines that lasted nearly 60 years. I had an amazing visit to Vindicator Valley and encourage you to also visit. However; be sure to call ahead to the main office (719-689-4220) to ensure no blasting is happening and you are ok to enter. Also, be sure that you obey all posted signs and enjoy. That being said; the “Vindicator Valley Trail” is one of the “Trails of Gold” outside of the town of Victor, CO. It is not a difficult trail but is distant from large cities. You can find lodging in Victor or Cripple Creek Colorado. Enjoy views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and the countless abandoned mines, hoists, and buildings.
