Dirt road for the first 4 miles to the reservoir. The road is closed at the reservoir right now, no way to drive the trail point to point. Great views though!

Great trail- definitely bring a sweater as it’s gets chilly, very nice views. Just be mindful around corners some folks drive a bit too quick but overall great!

Nice drive despite the bumps and holes. Terrible to see how people don't understand the concept of "leave no trace" as there's tons of trash and mess in areas used for target shooting. Not really a 4WD road either as plenty of RWD/FWD cars were flying down the road (Colo Springs side mostly).

Starting in the Springs we took it all the way to the reservoir. For the most parts it really nice. But closer to the reservoir where lead from shooting will run off into the drinking water there is trash everywhere. It really spoils an otherwise nice place.

Beautiful views! Closed to vehicles this time of year. Some icy spots, but nothing that wasn’t easy to pass. It was popular.

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.

It's fine for sightseeing, but not much for 'offroad driving'. Essentially a hard packed dirt road. Saw plenty of minivans and FWD cars on it.

First time out on old dirt mountain roads. Amazing views and a fun drive. Most of the washboard sets where on corners. Right where you don't want it especially in a truck with a empty bed. You can very easily slide around corners for this reason. But I would gladly drive this road again.

We love to camp and get away, but not to this campsite. We arrived and notice the trash not the beauty of the mountain. There was trash everywhere and not just camping trash. People have been dumping here. There was a lot of broken beer bottles scattered throughout the campsites. The signs posted said no shooting but there were ammunition shells everywhere and people shooting. Earth deserves better!
