      The Maryland Mountain Quartz Valley Park hosts 12 miles of multi-use trails and will be home to 3-4 downhill only bike only trails by 2022.

      The park features trails of various skill levels and allows visitors to hike or bike through an area filled with historical reminders of Colorado’s gold rush days. The trail system creates opportunities for passive outdoor recreation and heritage tourism while giving hikers, mountain bikers and nature and history lovers an incredible chance to see historic venues at the epicenter of Colorado’s Gold Rush. Some trails will include portions of the railroad bed from the historic Gilpin Tramway (which was the only two-foot narrow-gauge railroad in Colorado in the 1800s).
