"The working and abandoned mines along Grizzly Gulch are a present-day reminder of Colorado’s early history. In 1859, John H. Gregory was the first to strike lode gold in the mountains. Soon, Clear Creek County became one of the richest areas in the world and such towns as Central City, Black Hawk, and Empire sprang up. Today, the depleted and abandoned mines dot the landscape, sometimes reaching as high as the Continental Divide as in the case of mines in Grizzly Gulch. As you hike, observe the discolored piles of tailings, rusted derricks, and machinery on the flanks of Kelso and Grizzly Peak. In this gulch, the most famous mine is the Josephine Mine on the left, at the head of the gulch where the hike begins."
