The site of Hancock, Colorado is located in the San Isabel National Forest and is on public property.  Sad to say there is little remaining of the town itself.  A row of depressions indicate the locations of past structures with dug-out cellars or basements.  One building does have several structural logs remaining.  The Forest Service has placed some interpretive signs.

The site is heavily-visited.  Not only is it easily accessible via a maintained Forest Service Road, but it is in close proximity to popular ORV and hiking trails.  On our visit the area was quite busy with vehicles, parked trailers, and dirt bikes / atvs.

Although there is little to photograph at the town (and it was pouring rain, making photography difficult) there are many intact and photogenic mining ruins nearby from the same era.  These photos were taken at the Allie Belle Mine, just North of Hancock.
