Description

Lulu City, a town of 500 at its peak, only lasted from 1879 to 1883. Of the many shops and cabins that settlers built in Lulu City, including a grocery, butcher shop, post office, and a saloon, the only visible structural remains are those of a log cabin. Researchers found several building platform outlines as well as some scattered artifacts.

This gem is rich in history and scenic beauty. That said, don't expect to arrive at a restored western town. All that remains of Lulu City are some log cabin ruins.

Half-Day Run: Hike into Lulu City via the Lulu City Out-and-Back which utilizes the Colorado River Trail.
