A town with a historic past. A shoot with a matchless view.


Nestled between some of Colorado's highest mountains, Leadville is a true throwback to Colorado's wild, wild west. Home to Horace and Baby Doe Tabor, the Unsinkable Molly Brown, and even the infamous Doc Holliday, Leadville once had a population of over 30,000 residents and was the 2nd largest city in Colorado.

Now-a-days Leadville is home to a growing heritage, recreation, and eco-tourism economy. While mining is still performed north of town by Climax Molybdenum, now its the 14,000 ft peaks of Mt. Elbert, Mt. Massive, and Mt. Sherman that bring visitors from all over Colorado and the world.

When the snow is gone, there is still plenty to do. With both the Colorado and Continental Divide Trails cutting through Lake County, there are plenty of hiking opportunities in addition to our three 14,000 ft peaks you can hike to. There's also over 100 miles of  biking and 4-wheel drive trails
