History

As you enter the area on F.S. 315, you'll see signs for the Midland Bike Trail on the left. This bike route follows an old railroad grade of the Colorado Midland R.R. that was active from 887 to 1918. The railroad ran from Colorado Springs to New Castle on the Western Slope. New Castle produced coal and limestone, which was shipped to major mining centers, including leadville. The railroad also carried passengers to Glenwood Hot Springs.
