Walk in the footsteps of ancient people on this rugged, rocky route near Golden. This is a truly fun hike with a lot of vertical and visual appeal. When the first round of American gold-grubbers moseyed west in 1849-50, passing through Colorado on their way to California, some of them dipped into the creeks of the Front Range to see what they could find. Lewis Ralston found traces of the glittery treasure near the confluence of Clear Creek and what is now called Ralston Creek. Not enough to stop their journey to California, but enough to cause some excitement. News of the discovery percolated for years after the California rush fizzled, then helped drive the new rush to “Pikes Peak,” as would-be gold-seekers called the Front Range region. Ralston Creek is now best known for its contamination.
