Walk from Breckenridge to Ford Gulch on this moderately strenuous out-and-back to a mining district with extra historical significance. This is a “civilized” hike on trails that cut through the neighborhood above Breckenridge. Barney Ford was born into slavery, his mother a slave, his father a plantation owner. At age 25 he was slaving on a riverboat crew and managed to escape to Chicago, where he met his wife, Julia. Ford came to Breckenridge by way of Nicaragua, strangely enough. He and Julia had embarked for California via ship, but got sidetracked in Central America, setting up a hotel there. When Nicaragua passed a pro-slavery law and the Fords’ hotel was bombed, collateral damage in the local political violence, the couple went back to the United States.
