This is a steep yet easy OHV trail. The road has lots of potholes. Old Stage Road is the only connection to Gold Camp Road and then to Cripple Creek.

A good trail. Definitely has some parts that are washed out that get difficult. Also people fly around blind corners so watch out for that. There are some narrow spots where only one car can pass so mind the ditch on the side of the road and you’ll be good. The drive after the road ends is just turning to fall colors as well

This is a rough road. I would not rate it easy. You have to many people with low clearance cars on this road. I went with my Subaru and was ok, but it was not comfortable as you got closer to town. Very washed out and over run. Don't let the "easy" fool you.

We drove this road starting at the Cripple Creek end of the trail heading to Colorado Springs in a 4x4 truck. The first half was scenic and the road wasn't too bad at all. The last half the road was absolutely atrocious. Trash was everywhere, and people had destroyed parts of the forest target shooting etc. Phantom Canyon road was a much prettier scenic drive and the road was in WAY better shape.

The roads up are pretty well maintained made the drive in my Hyundai. There are definitely spots with pot holes or rocks in the path, so just be mindful to look out for that. Shooting ranges and nice camping area can easily be found along the way. Many steams and little ponds with fish within in them. Nice area for a day trip or camping.

What a great drive! Very little other traffic or people to be seen. Encountered a road grading crew, so the road is maintained. There were some pothole and rough patches...bot not too bad. Living in MN we have worse city streets in the spring in some areas (St. Paul). Take it slow and enjoy the scenery. The road serves both National Forest Land and Private Property. Kind of surprising and sad was the amount of trash to be seen in places. We took close to 4.5 hours including stops along the way. The road ends near the mining town of Victor and the Historic town Cripple Creek with its casinos.

Trail is nice for sightseeing, but very little of 'offroad driving'. Would rate as easy as there were plenty of minivans and FWD cars driving on it.

Trail has some beautiful scenery. Opportunity to shoot guns and camp, but the opportunities to do this are kinda lame. If this review was purely for the scenic drive, then 5/5 stars. Also 4x4 is not required. The trail is rated as a moderate but should be more like an easy drive with small bumbs every once in a while. Still worth the scenic drive.

Trail was flat most of the way. You could take your Prius on here if you wanted. Leads to some other fun trails but the trail itself is boring.

Pretty good trail. Lots of potholes, few off the path trails to 4 wheel in but overall not too bad. Great spots to get really good views at.
