Drive Gold Camp Road

Colorado Gold Camp Road

Added by Billy DiMirra

This road provides some great views of mountains and Colorado springs, as well as numerous trailheads for exploring.

Gold Camp Road is a road that begins near Bear Creek Regional park. As you drive up the winding road, the road will turn to dirt. Continue driving down the dirt road, turn the corner and BAM, you're hit with some mountain views that will take your breath away. As you continue to drive Gold camp road you will drive through some really cool rock tunnels that cut through the mountains. There are various parking lots on the road that indicate trail heads, and eventually you will intersect with Cheyanne Mountain state park, which has tons of trails to hike too. The roads are pretty wide, but do get narrow on some turns. Please, Be careful of mountain bikers, runners, and wildlife because they will be out at all times of the year.

Most scenic drive ever

Being able to stay with a few friend in Colorado gave me the chance to go on a little off road adventure with them. They took me on this drive during the hotter months of the year so there was no snow. I am glad the road wasn't closed because these views were insane!

Super Cool Drive

Did this drive in September, It was a very cool drive, there were quite a few people there so it was a little scary around every turn with how fast some other drivers were going. But the drive was super cool and beautiful, totally worth it!

Pretty, Probably better in the Summer or Fall

Drove it in early Spring; nice drive but the actual gold camp road is a dirt road so it was pretty muddy. Probably better to do in the Summer or Fall. There are many aspen trees at the entrance so I'm sure it's gorgeous in the fall when leaves are changing.
