Very dog friendly, very busy parking lots, watch for mountain bikers on the trails. Views are nice and the road isn’t challenging at all. There are some narrows parts but nothing a little patience with on coming traffic won’t solve. Several non 4x4 vehicles were able to negotiate the roads. Black marked trails are not for bikes.

Not to much traffic, narrow at points and sorry to the guy I blinded at tunnel number 2

HIKES BEWARE: Just a couple miles in, we found a syringe and fresh bloody cotton ball in the middle of the trail. As a result, I really didn't feel safe for the little trail we drove/walked. There are also beer cans/trash strewn all along the sides of the trail. It's a shame, because the views are spectacular. Next time we go, we will probably remain in the car for the entirety of the trail.

I enjoyed the hike minus the off road vehicles riding past everyone. This is more like walking on a dirt road but the views are nice in some areas and there are several trails branching off to venture.

lots of trash, I know it's not the trails fault but someone should patrol this area and charge people that treat it like a dumpster.

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!

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

Decent short drive with great overhead views of the Broadmoor and Colorado Springs. A few tunnels and several foot hike spots along the way. Wish it was longer.

Was a beautiful drive with the exception of all the trash along the way. We are working to perform cleanup there in the next few weeks. Really bad washboard road. But not horrible.

Hiked to the first tunnel off the road. Not far and definitely worth the hike

Good hike on an old train tracks road. Little water so make sure you pack it. There’s a good tunnel to hike through about 4 miles up.

Beautiful place. You can find trails off of the road, but lookout for bikes. The trails surrounding Gold Camp road can get difficult.

Definitely not the place of you’re looking for off road driving, but it was definitely cool to drive through. The tunnels were neat, and there’s a lot of hiking trails.

Beautiful scenic area for an easy edge-of-town drive. More of a road than a hike. Runs from a City Park to in town Colorado Springs. Would be a fun recreational bike ride.

Hiked from Gold Camp Road parking lot up past the notorious tunnel 3, there was a little bit of snow in spots, but totally negotiable. Easy hike with nice views of Colorado Springs.

Mostly all of my favorite hikes are located off of this road. So much history! A canyon full of beautiful secrets.
