See pictures & read more below: https://www.derelictdoug.net/derelict-doug-blog/american-confederacy-ghost-town-garo-colorado-1863-1936 A piece of Colorado's forgotten history- Guiraud (now called Garo) was a small settlement near Fairplay. Today the Buffalo Peaks Ranch and the old General Store and Post Office which dates to the 1880's are all that marks the spot, The schoolhouse was moved to the South Park City Museum in South Park, Colorado. The now ghost town is five miles north of Hartsel and seven miles south of Fairplay on Colorados Highway 9. Adolphe Guiraud & his wife Marie, we're the original settlers of the area. They were born in France and made there way to America through the port of New Orleans. They spent some time in Ohio and Kansas before settling in Garo, Colorado. They established the first homestead in South Park in 1863. The Guiraud Ranch still stands and is now called the "Buffalo Peaks Ranch". Adolphe is most known as the proprietor of the original general store, the "Guirauds General Store". However; he is less known for his ties to the American Confederacy. Adolphe Guiraud played a role in the failed Confederate incursion into Colorado Territory in 1864 when he allowed the nine remaining men of Company A, Well's Battalion, 3rd Texas Cavalry, Confederate Army to stay in July of '64. The nine men that made it to Guiraud's ranch were the remnants of fifty Confederate soldiers that set out from Texas, in June of that year. These men were under orders to disrupt the union's supply trains that ran through the Colorado territory. Their second order was to raise a Confederate army from the mining towns that surrounded Park County. Fortunately, the men disbanded from the Confederacy and became outlaws and bandits. They were dubbed "The Reynolds Gang" and in newspaper accounts of the day. On July 29th the Gang of men were cornered in Geneva Gulch near Grant, Colorado. One was killed, five were taken prisoner, and two died of bullet poisoning. The five who were captured were tried and convicted of rape and stagecoach robbery. Furthermore, they were convicted of treason for their involvement in the Confederate army. They were put to death on direct orders of Colonel John Chivington. Later that year in a related incident a man named "Chub" Newitt ran the General Store and Post Office at Garo. Chub was showing a customer some pistols at the store, he was shot with one, he died a short time later. Adolphe Guiraud died without being convicted or charged for aiding the Confederacy. His wife Marie, had a 34-year widowship and went on to become weathly. She grew the ranch from 640 achers to over 5,000 achers. She sold about 1,500 pounds of beef each year (which is about 1 millions dollar in todays money) Three years after her death she was recognized by the US Department of Agriculture in a release called, "The Importance of Women on ranches & Homesteads". Garo faded and died in the late 1920's and was abandoned except for the ranches that surround it by 1936.

For the full trail guide please visit: http://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/257-cinnamon-gulch Cinnamon Gulch is home to the remains of several large mining operations, including the Pennsylvania Mine. In 2015, the EPA launched a large project to staunch the flow of heavy metals and acidic water from the Pennsylvania. To facilitate their heavy equipment, the road along Cinnamon Gulch was improved. It is now mostly passable in 2-wheel-drive. Short spur roads off of Cinnamon Gulch offer some excellent photo ops with mine ruins and the picturesque valley below. Just be sure to respect these historic sites. Enjoy them from a safe distance.

For the full trail guide please visit: https://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/1126-pickle-gulch-blackhawk Technically Forest Service Road 718.1 is named Blackhawk but, because much of the lower part of the trail follows Pickle Gulch and because the Pickle Gulch Group Campground is right at the trailhead, it has been known in the Colorado 4-wheeling community as Pickle Gulch Trail for several decades. This 4x4 route delivers on much of the best of what Colorado's Front Range has to offer. Expect to experience smooth tree-shaded portions, open meadows, bumpy dirt roads, steep climbs, collapsed log cabins, weathered mining structures, and views of Rocky Mountain peaks. The top of Pickle Gulch connects to the extensive network of trails around Oregon Hill and Dakota Hill offering even more mining history, spectacular views and offroad adventure.

Saxon Mountain is an old mining trail that very quickly climbs from the 8500ft starting elevation to nearly 11,500ft. You are quickly provided with views up, down and across the I-70 corridor as you climb. This trail is NOT for anyone who gets nervous around ledges, since the trail decreases in width as you gain elevation. Combine the narrow trail with the likelihood of rock slides or new rocks on the trail, and it can be nerve wracking. But the view from the top is fantastic. Along the trail, there are mine ruins of the Anglo-Saxon, Loranzie, and Highland Mines, as well as old cabins. The trail in one spot leaves NO room for error. Near the top, there is a boulder that you must drive around, on the cliff side. With a Tacoma that has the same track as a Jeep, the passenger side tires rubbed against the boulder as the driver side tires were ON the edge of the shoulder of the roadway. Any further to the drivers side is a few hundred feet straight down. Even just having wider tires may make this obstacle impassable by pushing your drivers side tires off of the very narrow trail. The trail is not officially a directional trail, but we recommend only running this trail uphill. The narrow portions can be very dangerous if you have to yield to uphill traffic. Wide vehicles are not recommended and anything wider than a Tacoma or Jeep could have major issues.
