St. Elmo


St. Elmo, one of the most well preserved ghost towns in Colorado, was founded in 1880. Built around mining, the town hit its prime in 1890. With over 150 mine claims, a telegraph office, general store, five hotels, dance halls, a newspaper office and a school house, the population peaked at about 2,000 people. Take a tour of this historic ghost town on foot, ATV or horse back and explore all that St. Elmo has to offer. Visitors may also fish in Chalk Creek, tour old mining roads, and shop. Feeding the chipmunks that call St. Elmo, Colorado home is a popular activity.




From Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort, start out going west on county road 162. Follow county road 162 for about 12 miles until you reach the town of St. Elmo. The road is plowed year round.
