Clear Creek County lays on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide, about 3,000 feet above Denver. Clear Creek famously held the gold flakes which first drew miners to the mountains early in 1859.
The Gold Rush prompted thousands to settle in the county, establishing picturesque towns such as Georgetown and Idaho Springs. The silver mines of Silver Plume created a booming miner’s community while Empire was picked for gold.
The county boomed throughout the 1880’s, only to mercilessly fall out of economic favor during the Great Depression. In the 1930’s the population abandoned the mine shafts, creating the ghost towns found throughout the county.
Today, Clear Creek County holds beloved destinations for Denverites looking for a weekend getaway. It is a mecca for outdoor adventure, famous for whitewater rafting tours, zip line tours, and incredible OTV and 4-wheel trails. There are world class hiking and biking trails. Loveland Ski Area attracts day skiers and Georgetown and Idaho Springs offer no shortage of historical structures, family friendly activities and great local eateries.
