This winding dirt road takes you through an area rich in mining history. The first few miles of the road from Highway 21, the Ponderosa Pines Scenic Route, has several nice campsites right along the water. For the last 8 miles, you will pass through an active mining area. This mostly flat and wide drive through the valley is a nice scenic with lots of history. Small potholes and washboard sections are the only obstacles on this road, making it suitable for most vehicles. Grimes Creek connects to Centerville Road so you can finish your dirt road trip to Idaho City.
