Silver Creek

Highlight: Silver Creek
Located just south of present day Lawson, Silver Creek was a booming mining and resort community first settled in 1869. Rich silver deposits helped produce over 6 million dollars until the 1893 silver crash. By 1922, most of the mines were closed and the last inhabitants left during the depression. Today, four-wheelers and ATVs have carved hundreds of trails and routes all over the area of Silver Creek, but almost any reminder of what was once a booming mine settlement has been lost. These easy to moderate dirt routes provide ample opportunity to seek seclusion and immerse yourself in the dense forest.
