Go Up Go Down

Good day to everyone,

I am VERY NEW to all of this and am thinking about MDing and Trail Marker searches.  Does anyone have any pertinent info, in regards to these catagories, in the Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado area?  ANY help/input would be greatly appreciated. (ie. eg. - ghost towns, outlaw stories, folk lore, etc)

Thanks much,

Dominick

Possibly the most famous of Colorado's lost treasures is the Devil's Head Treasure, supposedly still to be found near Devil's Head, a mountain of topaz-rich rock about seven miles nearly due east of Deckers in Douglas County. The area was known as an ideal hideout for highwaymen in the late 1800s, and Devil's Head made a fine lookout. Unfortunately for one gang of train robbers, headed toward Devil's Head with some $60,000 in gold eagle coins, the authorities knew it, too, and chased the bandits into a wooded area near their destination. The bad guys buried their ill-gotten gains and stuck a knife into a nearby tree to mark the spot. Years later, in 1923, an old man named Tom Nixon told forest ranger Roy Dupre that he had been a participant in the robbery and was searching for the dagger, either stuck in a tree or in the leaves at the base of a tree.
