Part of the Vallecito, Colorado area.

Tuckerville Trail: Follow directions to Cave Basin Trail and continue to the end of road (11 miles) to an open area which was the mining town of Tuckerville. All the buildings have been removed, including six bunkhouses, shop, and a mess hall, in full operation from 1920 to 1929. There are many trails leaving from there, some starting as ATV trails. If you bear left you will reach a wonderful overlook where there were mines in the cliffs below.
