Cripple Creek Ghost Walk Tours
About the location they explore....
Step back in time - Cripple Creek, Colorado. The World's Greatest Gold Camp! Meet Bob Womack. On first appearance he seems the typical turn-of-the-century cowboy.But this man made a discovery that changed history. In October 1890, he discovered gold in Poverty Gulch (now Cripple Creek, Colorado),starting a rush that caught the attention of the world. The ore Womack dug from the earth sent the fever through thousands of souls and has created a National Park Service recognized National Historic District that draws tourists from around the world. Old mine shafts, head frames and cabins still dot the landscape here in the high country behind Pikes Peak.

Tours include ghost stories, true tales of the old west, and interesting facts about historic buildings. Special rates and times for buses and private parties.
