Great trail ride for beginners with amazing views that can be enjoyed by all! Not sure what made this a blue trail, there were a couple rough patches but have confidence factory Jeeps and 4Runners/Tacomas would make the trip without spotters. For comparison, we were in my fiancé’s lifted TRD Pro 4Runner on 285’s and did not scrape or rub anywhere, did not use spotters, and didn’t really have to pick a “safe/easy” line. She loved seeing all the pikas, marmots, and chipmunks. There are several spurs we didn’t explore sticking to the main trail mostly but we will be back to see more. I mean there were still Ice caps in August, how cool. We caught a sleet storm, so take jackets and some warmer clothes even if it’s hot before you arrive.

Drove up to the top of the mercury lift in my wife’s 2wd highlander. Thats as far as you can go without a true 4wd in dry weather. Might not make it that far if wet. The hike is another 3.25 miles from there. Steep and loose rock. Don’t not hike the last 400’ish feet to the summit. Your to close at that point to see the western side of the range. Views of Frisco, Breckenridge, crystal lake and much more.

Great trail, very easy at the beginning, gets steeper, rockier, and tighter as you go up. Perhaps not for the absolute beginner off-road driver, but easy to navigate if you can pick a decent line. Fun to see the ski slopes from a different perspective. I started in the Peak 9 parking lot and followed the road up to the stables before turning onto CR751 which goes to the top. ‘14 4Runner, 2” lift, 265s.

Amazing views and great stops for lunch!

Views were simply amazing! Makes for a great loop. Not congested. Very few truly technical spots.

This ride was amazing! At the top you have to hike another 500-600 feet of elevation to get to the peak. A little tough in the thin air, but INCREDIBLE!
The one thing I’ll say is the map on here shows a starting point at a private rec club. I had to go over to beaver run, then trek over to hit the trail about a quarter mile in.

We took the Rubicon here. What a beautiful place! I must admit there are some areas where lockers are needed so be prepared for that.

Beautiful drive. Moderate trail with switchbacks at the end. Easy drive first half, but a 4RUNNER had to help a Honda Pilot get unstuck. Def a 4 wheel trail 2nd half. Climb to peak is absolutely worth it and easy once the snow melts in late July.

A nice trail with a 4x4. Not too difficult. Take the upper left to the top of Radical Hill. Usually a few goats up there. Then backtrack and take Saints John back to Montezuma or just go back via Deer Creek.

Adventured through the pass to Leadville. Tons of abandoned mines. Saw a few beavers & wild flowers galore. Small brewery in Leadville at end of trial in town was a nice end to a perfect day.

drove our Jeep Rubicon over from Alma to Leadville. Gorgeous! Yes, very rocky (reading the review below) but I think that is what we should expect, especially on a pass that's 13,185. Can't wait to do again.

Jeeped it. Nice trail, super easy for halfway then got some tight switchbacks. Hiked from where the road ended to flag on top of peak, tricky, but well worth it. Great views all around, even though it was a bit overcast. Highly recommend.

Great Jeep trail for enjoying Colorado scenery. Trails are not rock crawl worthy by any means, but there are a few challenging spots. This was a weekday trek with very light ATV traffic, but based on the trail ruts this is probably a high traffic area on the weekends considering its proximity to CO Springs. 2014 JKU Oscar Mike 2-1/2” lift, ran 25 psi and in 4 low for bit just to keep the speed down and ease for the steeper grades. Nice old structures to experience on one part. Nice Forest Service trail map board and maps for the taking if they didn’t run out. Recommend stand alone GPS unit as cell service is spotty at best. I used a Tom Tom which had all trails properly identified. Overall awesome trail for moderate off-roading and great scenery.

awesome!!

Great time! My wife and I loved it. Her first drive (Wrangler Unlimited in 4H).

We started in Leadville & drove through to Fairplay. It’s not challenging, but it’s very rough / rocky. The views are beautiful.

Very nice senic trail

So my wife and I just hiked this road today, 6/22/18. We drove up county road 12 outside of Alma and parked just past the crossing of Mosquito creek. Once you get to the first switchback beyond here, is where the road turns ugly. And that's about 2/10 of a mile. 4 x 4 from there. 2 wheel drive no problem to the creek. This road is intermittent in it's ugliness. There are sections that are really rocky and require some experience, and then it mellows out till the next stretch. I chose not to destroy my wife's Expedition on this road, and so we parked and hiked. The road is still snow bound right now just beyond the saddle you gain above the North London mine. From the mine up, this is where the road is really one lane, and rough!! We managed to get across that snow drift fairly easily, as the snow was soft and we could dig in our heels. I have read about how you can pass other vehicles that might be coming down from the other way. But honestly, beyond the mine, it 's really a one lane road. There may be a few places to get past someone, but no thanks. Below the mine to the creek, plenty of room for going around someone, but still some ugly sections. It took us 2 hours to get to the pass from the creek, and about the same coming down. It was 5.7 miles total. As with our recent hike to the top of Mt. Sherman, we were greeted with the most horrific winds at the top of the pass today. Insane. We could barely hold the camera steady for pics. We stayed about 2-3 minutes, and that's all we could take. Just below the pass it let up some, but was still really windy the whole way back down. Something about that Mosquito range. Wow. The scenery is awesome as with all the high country around here. Even though this is really a 4 x 4 road trip, this was a good hike too. I recommend it if you don't have the interest, or the experience, with 4 wheeling on roads of this nature. I am guessing another 2-3 weeks before the road is snow free at that one spot. Some interesting mining history here as well, like most of Colorado has. A few snow flurries on our walk back down too :) . Another great hike off of highway 9.

Not many good camping spots or views, and the road was very rough. Other passes in the area are much better.

My first off-road with newly outfitted Jeep & my sons in a TRD Pro. Didn’t drive entire trail, but stopped to have lunch & do some snowshoeing with our Yellow Lab, Big Boy, down to a frozen river. It was a blast! And, we had the entire trail to ourselves!

This is an awesome trail! I have a 2017 stock Jeep Unlimited Wrangler. The trail was not an issue. The top was closed for the winter but it was a fantastic drive with amazing views.

Fairly easy trail for stock '12 dodge ram 1500 until you get to london mine. the road up to the summit/pass, then down to the switch backs is not recommended unless you have a decent 4x4 setup with good clearance.

Hike is primarily on a dirt/rock road. Not many other hikers but a few SUV's and jeeps also using the road heading to the base of Peak 10. The view at the top once you get there is well worth the hike. The road/trail ends just prior to a climb of probably 300-400 feet to the summit and flag. No real trail to this so you would have to pick your way along the ridge of rocks to summit. We were satisfied with our 360 degree view and too tired and oxygen deprived to climb the additional 300-400 feet to the summit. Overall the hike was worthwhile due to the views at the highest point.

Great trip for off roading. It was my 1st trip with a Jeep I purchased. Rated at moderate in my opinion due to some difficult spots heading up the Alma side. This side kind of sneaks up on you as all of a sudden you are in the middle of a solid boulder field headed up to London mine. Pick your line and go!
Good time.
