This is a short but sweet little history tour of a hydraulic placer mining operation near Breckenridge. History buffs will get a kick out of the curated exhibits on this micro-adventure, but hiking enthusiasts might fail to get their ya-ya’s out satisfactorily, and nature lovers will be even more disappointed in the human race than they were before. Sheer volume. That’s what hydraulic placer mining was all about. They destroyed the mountain in order to get at some specks of sparkly metal buried in the dirt. And they got rich doing it. This pressure-blasted canyon has become an outdoor museum of sorts, for those with a minimum of strength to get up the hill. The route is fairly well manicured and straightforward. There are several spurs to “exhibits” off the main trail.
