Pioneer life in the hills and canyons near Golden was harsh, difficult, and not for the faint of heart. Most who survived in the beautiful, if inhospitable region, succeeded as farmers and ranchers. Relive the experience by exploring the blacksmith shop, log cabins, hay barn and root cellar. Visit with our heirloom-breed chickens and discover a buzzing beehive. On select days, interact with costumed interpreters who enliven the landscape with cooking and blacksmithing demonstrations. Step inside the one-room Guy Hill Schoolhouse and take a seat in a student’s desk, but don’t wisecrack to the school mistress!

I liked the chickens but the rest just seems sad and unkempt. It's a nice walk to get there, though.

Beautiful views all around, along with an old time pioneer village. Saw lots of families & kids petting the chickens. You can also just stroll along the scenic trail & walk your dog or ride a bike-very peaceful.

This is a great place to walk around, ride your bike and see the old structures. There were people wading in the water and tubing down the stream.

This one truly has something for everyone. You can stroll or run along the creek, and visit the historic buildings most any time of year. In the spring and summer, there are tubers and kayakers in the creek. There are large trees, nice picnic areas,...More

People were wading, tubing, swimming. Great for anybody but especially kids and dogs. Nice public art: fish, butterflies, elk, and more. Clean, accessible.
