Lulu City Trail
Follow traces of an old wagon road to the Shipler Mine and Cabins and the Lulu City site. Lodgepole pine and spruce-fir trees line this family-friendly trail. Hiking early in the morning or in the evening, you are likely to see elk, deer, moose, chipmunks, and birds (especially camp robbers). The infant Colorado River winds through the Kawuneeche Valley on its long journey to Mexico. Lulu City was a lively mining town from 1880–1884. The Grand Ditch, which still carries water from the Colorado River watershed to the Cache la Poudre River drainage to the north, is visible for much of the hike.
