Did this trail on Labor Day weekend in the Grand Cherokee that we’ve owned for about 4 days. Pleasantly surprised as to how well it did on this not very hard trail. We did the entire loop of Phantom Canyon, Seep Springs and County Road 69 from Canon City out to Victor and Cripple Creek and back to Canon City again. Love the scenic trails.

The Seep Springs area is clear and dry. The air is a little hazy with the proximity to the wildfire outside of Salida.

Ran this trail as part of a scenic route from Colorado Springs to Canon City. ("Shelf Road" to "Seep Springs/BLM5830" to "Fremont County Road 69- Seep Springs OHV Connector") Nothing Special, but it was helpful to find this trail on here to complete our scenic route. Easy gravel road, passable with any vehicle I would imagine. (We ran it on a sunny, dry afternoon.)
