You’ve heard the phrase, “There’s gold in them thar hills!” and there’s no time like the fall season to enjoy gold in Colorado’s high country while staying at a romantic bed and breakfast inn. Holden House 1902 Bed & Breakfast Inn, located in Colorado Springs is the perfect place to base your day excursions for aspen leaf peeping. The innkeepers at Holden House will point you to the best aspen gold colors, just a short drive to take a hike or windshield tour of the Pikes Peak region’s beautiful and amazing scenery.
One of the best fall tours is to drive up U.S. Highway 24 West and take in the majestic scenery and the heritage of Ute Pass toward the town of Cripple Creek, a historic gold mining region. On the way, you will see splashes of golden and peach colored aspens. One possible stop might be Mueller State Park along State Highway 67, where both moderate and challenging trails will welcome you. If you’re in the mood for more moderate walking trails, continue along Highway 24 west to Teller County 1, where the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument offers winding paths among large petrified tree stumps. Once a pre-volcanic valley of gigantic Redwoods, this National Monument is one natural wonder you won’t want to miss. Along the way, this beautiful valley surrounds you and offers a rare east-looking view of America’s Mountain, Pikes Peak, which is most often viewed from a westward perspective from Colorado Springs. If you continue along Teller County Road 1 and Highway 67, you’ll end up in the towns of Cripple Creek and nearby Victor which offer a historic glimpse into Colorado’s rich mining history, including a District Museum, the Mollie Kathleen Mine Tour, The Old Homestead “Parlor House”, Narrow Gauge Railroad, Heritage Center, roaming Donkey herd and gaming district with slots to try your hand at winning your own jackpot. Victor, the small town near Cripple Creek is known as the City of Mines and some back roads on well maintained gravel take you along some amazing scenic overviews.
