History

The G Line takes its name from the fact that it passes near the site of the discovery of gold in Colorado. This discovery took place in 1850 when Lewis Ralston, on his way to the California gold fields with a party from Georgia, panned for gold in the creek that now bears his name, where it flows into Clear Creek.
