There's Gold in Them Thar Hills - Spur Cross
Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area
March 28 Sunday 9:00 am There's Gold in Them Thar Hills (moderate) Anglo and Hispanic settlement in Cave Creek began in the 1870s after the subjugation of the local Apaches. For the next half-century, the Cave Creek Gold District was in full swing until both production and patience ran low, and investment fell through. But there is still some gold for those patient and skillful enough to find it. Bring a plastic gold pan or even a pie tin for a hands-on experience. Keep in mind that a panning day is always a good day and if you actually find some gold, it’s a great day. This is a family activity.
