A guided walking tour exploring the Independence Ghost Town where, legend has it, prospectors struck gold on July 4, 1879 making the area the first mining site in the Roaring Fork Valley. Today, Independence is an archaeological preserve located just below the continental Divide and a “don’t-miss stop” on Independence Pass along the Top of the Rockies’ Scenic Byway.
