Short drive up the road from the Hot Springs resort, the last few miles are a dirt road. We went in August so there were lots of other people visiting, and plenty of ORV traffic also. Parked and wandered around, visited the General store, and watched the chipmunks. Neat old place but not much else to do.

Lived here practically my entire life. Camped all over these hills with parents in an RV. Went all over the Mtns. of Colorado and never been St. Elmo until the other day. Hard road to find from Buena Vista. Took several wrong turns but finally made it with Toyota Camry. I don't like to drive on dirt roads with my car, but the road is ok. I can see if it rains, it would NOT BE good to drive though...so check the weather before you head out. When I finally reached this town, it was over-run with tourists. Perhaps they were looking for the ghosts..... LOL. Spent about 30 minutes taking some pictures...but that was hard to do with people all over the place. When I was heading back to town, I just said ok...finally so St Elmo. No biggy--but that's just my opinion.

We stopped by here on the way out of town last week, and it was so cool. An old deserted little western/Indian town and the bonus was all the chipmunks that you got to feed. Highly recommend

Beautiful well-preserved ghost town not too far from the hot springs. The drive there is mostly a dirt road but it was in good shape for a dirt road. Feeding the chipmunks was definitely a highlight. There are bags of sunflower seeds to purchase (50 cents for a bag on the honor system) outside of the market. We went through 4 bags because it was so much fun. Chipmunks crawl all over you! It was such a fun experience. The town itself is a walk back in time. If it wasn’t for the constant sounds of dirt bikes and 4- wheelers, I would’ve enjoyed it a bit more. The place is overrun with them. The kids didn’t seem too bothered by it because they were to enthralled with the chipmunks. It is definitely loud and annoying. But still fun.

Nice 15 mile drive off Hwy 285 to an old mining town. Chipmunks were a huge hit with young and old. Several building left from the height of the mining boom. Too bad they were closed due to Covid.
