As a part of the historic Route Of The Silver Kings, Iowa Gulch is rich in mining history. Lower Iowa Gulch traverses along the bottom of the drainage, passing giant mining structures that once brought fame and fortune to many people. This trail rewards you with majestic views from the base of massive peaks such as Mount Sherman and Mount Sheridan and also offers across-the-valley views of Mount Elbert and Mount Massive. Combine this trail with others in the area to make a half-day loop sure to entertain you while you visit the Leadville area, the once home of the Unsinkable Molly Brown and Doc Holliday.
