"Ghost town of Russell Gulch" Russell Gulch by Yorick12

Russell Gulch Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

Russell Gulch is an old mining town located in Gilpin County just a few miles outside of Central City via Virginia Canyon Road. It is now filled with partially collapsed stone buildings, mixed with a few upkept homes. It's very scenic and worth a look. Taking Virginia Canyon or the "Oh My God Road" from Central Central into Idaho Springs is a thrill in itself! All of Russell Gulch is on private property so be respectful and don't trespass.

One stone and brick building remains intact, though vacant.

The two story school house overlooks Russell Gulch.
