Most people view Boulder as a mountain playground, or as a cozy tourist destination. But Boulder's true heritage lies in mining. Driving through the area you cannot help but notice mining's manifestations on the surrounding landscape. The Lafayette Miners Museum celebrates the mining tradition in a restored coal mining cabin. Dating back to the 1890s, the six room cabin, run by the Louisville Historical Society, features period clothing and furniture, along with various mining tools of the day.
Ore mining was the primary industry in Louisville's early days and the Coal Creek Mine was the largest in the area, to the point where today many buildings, streets, and other locations are named after it in some way. The Coal Creek hiking trail, which winds through downtown Louisville's vast open space, follows the path of the mine from Louisville to Lafayette. The hike is far from strenuous but still long enough for some good exercise, and offers views of the remains of the Louisville wetlands, the mountains, local wildlife, and lots of beautiful open space. Bring lots of water to avoid dehydration and altitude sickness. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh
