Hero: Iowa Amphitheater
small-aa Icon
Lurking between the shadows of 14,036' Mount Sherman, 13,951' Gemini Peak, and 13,855' Dyer Mountain, Iowa Amphitheater is one of the most scenic and breathtaking trails you've never heard of. Located southeast of Leadville, along the Route Of The Silver Kings, this trail takes travelers back in time across old mining claims, past desolate structures and finally ends in a once prosperous basin filled with antique equipment that once produced over 10 million ounces of silver. This trail is a perfect escape for the adventure seeker that enjoys mining history and high-altitude views.
