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.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

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.
