Silver Cliff, Co. is commonly linked with its sister city, Westcliffe. The two towns are connected, and often appear as one. Located on the scenic Colorado 96, southwest of Pueblo, Silver Cliff is part of the Frontier Pathway Scenic and Historic Byway. A notable route once traveled by Native Americans, explorers, and homesteaders, Frontier Pathways is today a spectacular driving route. Along it visitors can expect landscapes ranging from green meadows to snow-capped mountains and historic structures ranging from mining remnants to Victorian houses.
Silver Cliff was once one of the state's largest boomtowns, and some remaining structures, including an old school, the original town hall, and a fire station, reflect that important era. There are also few shops and eateries in downtown. Travelers will find everything from Western wear and turquoise jewelry to antiques and works by local artisans. There's also an inn, convenience store, and several nice town parks. Westcliffe offers most of the lodging properties in the area.
Nearby attractions include the San Isabel National Forest and the Wet Mountains. Hiking trails abound here, but the most famous pathway is the Rainbow Trail, which winds for miles through the adjacent Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Several nearby 14,000-foot peaks will also pose a challenge for climbers, and mountain lakes in the area will provide the perfect setting for a lazy afternoon of fishing.
