Two Mile High Club Aspen Tours
September 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - October 3, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Come up the mountain to Cripple Creek this fall to see the colorful aspen and buy some donkey snacks to help the Two Mile High Club take care of our beloved donkeys! The Aspen Tours this year are again self-guided and can be enjoyed from the privacy and safety of your personal vehicle. Information packets with a map, script, and swag are available for a $10 donation and can be found at the Heritage Center on Hwy 67 above Cripple Creek and also at the Victor Gold Camp Artist Co-op (100 S 2nd St) in Victor, CO.
Teller County has some of the most spectacular aspen viewing areas in the State of Colorado. Drive to the Gold Camp on Hwy 67 and tour both the communities of Cripple Creek and Victor via Hwy 67 and Co Rd 82. Take Co Rd 821 between Victor and Cripple Creek to have a spectacular view of the operations at Newmont CC&V Gold Mine. The drive is a circular route so no matter where you start, you will end up back where you started. The Gold Belt Scenic Byway is one of the most breathtaking routes in all of Colorado and definitely worth the trip, whether you take the backcountry gravel route or the paved scenic route. Visit all the great shops, restaurants, and museums or try your luck in one of the many casinos. Maybe even stay a couple of nights to really take in all that the Gold Camp has to offer.
Come up and enjoy the awesome fall colors and many beautiful scenic overlooks!
All proceeds from Aspen Tours 2022 benefit the feral donkey herd of Cripple Creek. HEE-HAW!
