Trail Information

Highlights

This is a connecting trail between Colorado Springs and Victor & Cripple Creek. It’s the access road to trails like Mt. Baldy, Bull Park, and some small off-shoots. For the most part it’s a scenic drive that ends at a nice valley view before turning into Gold Camp Road (South). This is a fun drive for anyone wanting to see a little of Colorado and a must-travel for those wanting to get to the trails and shooting spots in the area.

I saw a sign that the city is doing trail repairs from 15 August through 12 September. They had some equipment and guys directing traffic, but it doesn't seem they'll close the trail.

Nice scenic drive above Colorado Springs. A couple tight corners but most of it 2 way dirt road. Fun but dusty and very washboarded up.

Drove this in combination with Gold Camp. This road has seen some serious renovations. No tricky spots and it appears some sections may have even been paved. A decent amount of wash boarding, but no issues to speak of. Just remember to be cautious if doing this road. It's ease of access invites a lot of people and you can run into some reckless drivers. Drove again on 31 July 2022. Lots of rain recently have eliminated many of the renovations. The road is still easy to drive, but there's many more washboards and areas where the road has been rutted due to water run off.

Some sections of the road had been graded recently. Some sections had serious washboards. A few 2wd vehicles came to the overlook at the end of the trail.
