Great drive

nice and easy, you can bring the dog. Beautiful, easy.

This trail is a beautiful trail with amazing views easy, would be perfect for a family outing.

I went at the beginning of October. There was little traffic and the weather was very cooperative. Lots of amazing views!

Absolutely beautiful drive with stunning views, especially at the top. I drove with my windows down and was disappointed in the smell from all the car fumes.Alot of traffic so go during the week and early.

Jeep Wrangler JK. Really great ride through beautiful area. Best views! Fun for 4 wheel drive vehicle, but saw some standard cars and trucks on the path doing just fine. Bring a camera

Scenic driving. Not an Offroad trail. Pretty though.

Incredible, breathtaking view! You can see Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. Lots of things to learn with the signs posted around the trail. Definitely worth the fee, especially if you love history!

The petrified stumps were amazing! I’ve never seen anything like it! The trail was great, easy for kids! My 3 year old had a blast!

Nice, easy scenic drive. I drove it south to north and the traffic wasn't too bad on Saturday. The first 4.3 miles headed south to north is actually paved, and the rest of the drive north on this gravel road is easy - not even that many washboarded areas. Any car in halfway decent shape can make it. It's nothing like the eastern half of Gold Camp Road, which will bounce a sedan or other low-clearance vehicle all over the place.

The aspens really pick up as you get withing 10 miles of Victor and are peaking or just past peak as of Saturday, 9/29/2018. There is plenty of color in the southern portion of the drive too, you just have to look up along the canyon faces to see the red and yellows. The traffic wasn't bad either - probably saw a car every 5 minutes.

The bridges are cool, and I bet the canyon is something else during Spring after a a winter of heavy snowfall and Phantom Creek is really flowing.

We came here with our dog in the beginning of September. The waterfall was mostly dried up at the top but it has nice views still. Easy and short hike, loose dirt in some areas which makes it a bit slippery in some areas. There is a creek at the bottom near the parking lot which provides some shade. The drive to here has narrow and winding roads up the mountain but we drove about 15-20 mph and no issues.

Wife wasn't a fan of the road up, but the view is great. It's a nice walk, some wildlife, and plenty of sky. The drive is about 10 up and 10 down, fee is 15, definitely worth the stop. Little shop in town was nice too.

I walked the Gold Camp Road that is closed to vehicles, leads to Seven Bridges Trail and St. Mary's Falls Trail. The parking lot at the trailhead had very limited space. The hike was decently busy, granted it was a weekend afternoon. It was a bit warm, with limited shade. Unfortunately, Tunnel 3 is closed, barred off from pedestrians. The hike did offer some very nice views though!

Helen Hunt Falls is directly off of the parking lot, so there's very little walking to do once you've arrived in order to see the waterfall. Parking is very limited. There is a staircase that will take you up and over the falls and leads to some different trails.

Just drove it South to North... easy, beautiful canyon drive. No real Aspen color until the last few miles on North end. Victor area was peaking and amazing... continued back to the Springs on Gold Camp Road and really enjoyed the Aspens. If you only have time to do one road this time of year...I'd pick Gold Camp...

Short, easy, family-oriented hike. We found it by accident while driving on Gold Camp road. Will go back to do some of the other longer trails.

Awesome place! A must see and Jim Bishop was there willing to talk and hangout

Short little hike. Quick elevation. Steps and gravel trail. Wide and easy to follow. Family friendly. Busy parking because of popularity. Zero water flow during droughts but still pretty.

Really enjoyed this bypass during a busy day in RMNP. Views were great and the SUV cross-over rental car did great! Stopped a lot to view the area; the waterfall was a great stop for pictures. Many places to pull over to help traffic flow.

Great road to drive. If you are nervous just take it easy and pull out if you have a huge line behind you. Good for beginners. The steep parts are a bit tricky, but just trust you will get up. Dont gun it. Slow and steady. Only a few spots where I was thankful for a bit more clearances than a sedan. Have fun!

Must see if your in the area.

Very interesting place to visit. My family had a great time exploring

Beautiful area. We went this past April and it snowed about 2-3” while there which made for some awesome pictures! Really like Garden of the Gods. Very peaceful place.

Beautiful hike, very easy. Did it with my 63 year old parents who really loved the views. There are stairs and a hand railing for the majority of the hike

We enjoyed our hike of the outer trails. The trails are dirt any different elevations. Between the map we picked up at visitors Center and the signage never got lost. we ended with the main trail that is a cement path. You can go off onto other dirt paths and miss the crowds. It appears most people want to stay on the cement path and walk at their leisure.

Florisant Fossil Beds is one of my favorite national monuments. Who knew Colorado use to have their own Redwood trees? Beautifully preserved along an gorgeous open meadow, the loop displays beautiful wildflowers, small critters, and views across the way up into the mountains. The trail is very easy and there's plenty of informative signs along the way. Be sure to catch a ranger talk to see perfectly encompassed fossils from the ancient lake that once stood here.

One of my favorite places on my road trip to Colorado this year! So gorgeous and easy trails to relax but enjoy the outdoors. Warning it is very crowded!!! Fun places to boulder or even rock climb!

beautiful drive but not somewhere I would like with kids, it's a busier road.
