Silver Cliff, Colorado

Westcliffe's Other Half
I have been spending more time in Custer County recently and thought I'd start a Silver Cliff page. Silver Cliff is located one mile east of Westcliffe and is steeped in mining history. It was once a silver boom town in the 1800s. Today, it's in the shadows of Westcliffe -- as Westcliffe seems to get much of the love and notoriety from visitors -- but the mountain living in Silver Cliff is just as good. :)

Custer County, Colorado


The mountains come closer into the view as you drive east on Highway 69 towards Silver Cliff and Westcliffe. This is Custer County at her best.
