Hubby said "I found this road I want to try out on our way to Cripple Creek". So glad he suggested this way. It was simply breathtaking. Tins of places to stop off along the way for camping or for a picnic.

We took this road a few years ago, incredible scenery, scary drop offs, saw a small black bear. You can't be faint of heart to travel this road. Tried to take it again 3 years ago, only got part way, just too darn scary.
What an amazing experience to get off the main roads and discover the unspoiled beauty of Colorado. A great day trip is this road and Shelf Road between Cripple Creek and Canon City. You will not regret it. Take your time and ENJOY!

My wife and I recently took this drive from Canon City through mountains to Victor and Cripple Creek old mining area. Very nice drive. We would highly recommend.
A beautiful road which was once a railroad route which ended in 1920. No lead foot's as you must use caution on these narrow roads and tunnels. Lovely drive with lots of dust.
This road will take you through some spectacular scenery. Plenty of wildlife too. A must drive if you never have before.
As you can see from the picture, you get some interesting views, tunnels and get to see places that are away from the tourist traps. We really enjoyed getting to take our time and see some back country.
