Ruxton's Trading Post

Ruxton's Trading Post is located in an historic building that straddles Ruxton Creek. Ruxton Creek served as a landmark and route for Native Americans and early 19th century explorers.  One of those explorers was Frederick Ruxton and it seemed appropriate that we name our store after him.

Ruxton Avenue is the route to the Cog Railway Station and the Barr Trail Trailhead. Ride the Cog Railway to the summit of Pikes Peak or test your stamina on Barr Trail, a 13 mile climb to the summit.

Ruxton's Trading Post features Cowboy and Indian Antiques and Collectibles and Native American Art. Please browse our site or contact us with your wants.

Snowshoes Snow Shoes

These are the old antique style kind of snowshoes before the modern aluminum and plastic snow shoes were even thought about. These are made of rawhide and wood. The larger size snow shoes give more floatation on light, fluffy snow. The smaller snowshoes are easier to navigate through trees and rocks. Our snowshoes are about 25 to 40 years old. Sometimes we get very old ones and we will note that in the individual description.
