Trail Information


Two Brothers Road is an easy offroad trail that connects the old mountain mining towns of Idaho Springs and Central City. If you are one that shys away from the highways and would rather take the dirt roads, this is a trail you need to consider. Take a trip through history and revisit the early 1900s structures that once made up the blossoming network of mines surrounding "The Richest Square Mile on Earth".

Short and easy trail. Not a lot of old mining structures but a couple of cool things to see.

It was very fun for my first official offroading trail. The first part is very bumpy, but the rest is fun and see the old mine tunnels is very cool.

Easy little dirt road with a view. Cool seeing the old mining structures and a good detour on a weekend drive.

Pretty easy and short trail. The cool part is that it takes you out to part of Virginia Canyon Road (Oh My God Road), and you can explore a couple off shoots off of that. Continue down Virginia Canyon Road to Central City, or go out to the Parkway which will take you back to I70. The parkway is of course paved but really cool views.

This road is great if you want to avoid Oh My God Road - it's a straight shot up or down the mountain with no frills and no views. I use it all the time for saving a few minutes of time when going between Central City and Idaho Springs.
