My wife and I went on this trail today. I was a bit disappointed because about halfway it turns into some sort of paved county road. However, there are some really cool old mining structures. There are also some decent little side trails that our Polaris RZR 900 4 had no problem handling. They would have been too narrow for a truck or Jeep. Definitely some cool views. There is a not a defined parking lot but there are a few places the road is wide enough to park off to the side.

Excellent beginner trail for those looking to test their desire driving off road in the mountains. The off road section is mostly hard packed with some small ruts, potholes, washouts, but very minor. Views are great and cliffs right next to road can take your breath away.

We followed the road to where the directions took us and just explored all over the mountain. The decent amount of snow made it awesome and there were some good views.

The only thing "Oh my God!" about this road were the ruts carved out by water. Horribly bumpy. No great views. Cool if you like old mines.

Very easy drive. Not sure we ever said Oh My God but we did say WOW a few times!

Really cool mines... Reminisce of an old ghost town near the top.

Any vehicle can do this road, even it's rougher counterpart, Two Brothers Road, it's a quick little fun way to get to Central City from Idaho Springs. Good views of the valley below and cool mines along the way.

Steep but maintained dirt road.
