Great trail. Went a little off the trail on Pewabic Rd. For a little extra off roaring.

First time off roading, so I'm a newbie no doubt. That said, this trail was very scenic, but not challenging at all. Noticed some 2wd cars doing the same route. Have a 4runner offroad with 275s stock. Probably won't come back.

Fun trail and the sites are great. Lots of steep cliffs and the old mining buildings are great stopping points. Easily traversed in a stock 2014 Tacoma TRD Sport.

Completed on 11/25/20. After the intersection at Virginia Canyon Rd., the road was unplowed and I was driving in the 2-track created by another vehicles or two. Snow was fairly deep but the drive was still pretty easy, very bumpy. Historic mining artifacts along side, but many no-trespassing signs. As other have said, take Virginia Canyon Rd up for the best experience! Lots of cool mining history!

Scenic driving

Definitely take the first two switch-backs up Virginia Canyon (stay off Two Bros) - be careful - it’s a bit terrifying (blind hairpin turns, no guard rails, mostly single lane and mostly unpaved) but the views are breathtaking!

A local in Central City told us to take this route to get to Idaho Springs and he was spot on. Lots of cliff hanging turns and places where passing other vehicles is butt puckering.

As a few others have pointed out, this map is WRONG. You want to stay on Virginia Canyon Rd all the way up for the best experience. Missing the turn and staying on Two Brothers Rd (as this map has you doing) takes you up a very steep, not-at-all-scenic road that ultimate reconnects with Virginia Canyon, but misses all the good stuff.

Not a bad trail for a beginner. Nice to see the abandoned mines.

The first half from Idaho Springs is just washboard dirt road. I don't know why anyone would want to drive this as a 4WD trail. There's nothing even slightly technical, challenging, or rewarding about it, even in a stock SUV. Only thing you'll accomplish is rattling your vehicle's components apart. Perhaps if you take the right to stay on Virginia Canyon Rd instead of Two Brothers Rd as the map shows then it's better but I wouldn't know since I took the route shown on AllTrails.

I think the map is wrong here. My research shows you're supposed to turn right at the 854ft mark on Virginia Canyon Road. I took Two Brothers Road instead which doesn't seem right. Stil was a great drive though.

Great day to get out of the city and take in some fresh mountain air and stellarific Mountain View’s....happened upon some of Colorado’s Mining history along the way... Easy mellow drive....but very scenic and nourishing for the heart, mind and soul!

Enjoyable, but nothing really to write home about. The name is certainly very misleading.

The "Oh-My-God" statement may be how ridiculous it is to include this in All-Trails - this is a dirt road that actually turns into a paved road... There is an off-shoot right before the mine - can't recall the name that is a bit more of a trail; however, even that is a stretch... The area claims to have some interesting mines, but all are on private property and they are selling property to build houses on - if you are looking for some fun or interesting sights, this is not an area you should go...

Not very eventful to be honest. Barely even a trail. Starts off a little bumpy but then turns into a road. You probably could take your Ferrari down it.

So, it’s mainly a flat dirt road that has a decent descent into Idaho Spring. It’s not a 4x4 trail, there was a ford escort on the road. It has some washouts, but nothing major. I am sure it will be beautiful during the fall. And the signage isn’t that great - even though it says OMG on the signs, you really are just following Virginia Canyon Road. So as long as your seeing those signs your on the right path. It’s a short drive, with some winding drop offs, but nothing scary.

Short drive with good views. Makes more sense to head to Mt. Evans instead of this trail!
