Placer Valley

View from the top of Hoosier Pass into Placer Valley neighborhood

Just south of Hoosier Pass, at the foot of some of the highest peaks in Colorado you come upon the pacific neighborhood of Placer Valley. Gold mining done in flowing steams, panning, is called the placer technique, and gave the valley its name. Here, there are many waters that could have been placer mined. Quartzville Creek comes together with Moose Creek and adds to the upper reaches of Middle Fork of the South Platte River, which eventually flows to the Missouri River.

Mount Lincoln, Bross and Democrat are Fourteeners that form a cathedral-like backdrop for Placer Valley. All can be climbed from road accessed through Placer Valley - and are a popular bag-in-one-day treat for those hikers who are trying to ascend to the peak of every 14-thousand foot plus mountain in Colorado.

More about Placer Valley

In Placer Valley we are on the eastern side of the Continental Divide, and so these former gold glittered waters flow into the combined Platte River that joins the mighty Missouri River near Omaha, and eventually drains to the Gulf of Mexico. Head back up and cross over Hoosier Pass, and when you spill your coffee it will drain into the Pacific Ocean. The Continental Divide is the spine of America, and home to the purple mountains majesty we sing about in America, the Beautiful.

Fishing, Hiking and Stellar Views

From Placer Valley, follow the jeep roads along it creeks and you'll start climbing quickly. Fishing is good here, and several trails for skiing and hiking veer off from the main jeep roads. Montgomery Reservoir is just north of this valley, and beautiful but cold year round.

Location and Driving Directions:

Drive south from central Breckenridge for about 15 miles to the top of Hoosier Pass. Cross the pass and you'll see Placer Valley on the right-hand side of Highway 9.  Homes and land for sale here will be on the road the heads back north and some switchback along the first hill above the river.
