Anyone know any trails that end in Central City?

This would be cool to end at.

The annual Madam Lou Bunch Day will take place Saturday, June 18, smack in the middle of historic Central City. If you want to see a Colorado gaming town like you’ve never seen one before, you don’t want to miss Lou Bunch Day. It truly captures the bawdiness and rowdiness of a 19th-century gold-mining boomtown.

Madam Lou Bunch ran her house of ill repute on Pine Street, just behind Main Street and right below the mines, to settle all the racing hearts of the area’s hard-working miners during Colorado’s gold rush. When an epidemic broke out, Madam Lou and her girls closed up shop and turned their houses into makeshift hospitals, getting the miners back to working health and the local economy back on track. With this in mind, many locals are very passionate about Lou Bunch Day the history that it tells.

The day’s festivities, including food, music, costume contests and parade start at high noon and go until 5 p.m. on Main Street. The famous bed race starts at 3 p.m. sharp The festivities continue throughout the evening with the Madams and Miners Ball at Madam Gail’s, hosted by Century Casino at 8 p.m., where one can compete for “Madam,” “Dandy Dan” or “Sporting House Girl” of the Year – good for with bragging rights, of course!

Sounds interesting!

You could do Yankee Hill in reverse and end up in Central City. You could also do what we did a couple weeks ago when we got snowed out of everything else and take York Gulch up to Bald Mt. Rd. That's not a very long trail (and it's very easy), but it winds up in Central City as well.

I'm taking a trip to the Great Sand Dunes, followed by Medano Pass and Hayden Pass that weekend, so I won't be able to make it.
