It great and unexpected snow day! I love it

Beautiful trail. Gets a little rocky in upper portion, but not a bad drive.

Did 2 miles out and back. Snowy and some mud in spots. Heard shooting off in distance at beginning of trail, got quiet as trail went on. Good incline in spots, flat in other spots. Beautiful forest setting 1 mile in! Nice views of Pikes towards beginning. I will definitely be back later to do the whole loop!

pretty drive along the creek. went March 21 and only came across minimal snow slush that a Prius could fly through if it wanted. we stopped 2-3 times and it took us almost 3 hours to finish. please remember to drive slow...we saw several cars hauling butt around the corners.

we didn't really see any wildlife except for deer. The tunnels were cool, and had some pretty views, but probably won't do this trail again. definitely a nice place to take families, and have lunch as they have public restrooms and picnic tables.

Absolutely spectacular views. My family and I have been to Breck every year to go skiing, and this is the first time we decided to go hiking (we visited late March this year). We were recommended the Boreas Pass by a woman from Great Western Lodging. 12/10 would recommend to anyone looking to get outdoors and witness panoramic scenery of the Rockies

PS. Stay on the path! I didn’t have snow boots and managed fine... but if you venture off the (packed snow) trail as a hiker, you may find yourself almost knee-deep in snow. Optimum footwear would be tall boots; have good traction, and (of course) be waterproof.

Lots of fresh snow, about 18" deep off trail. Nearly 100% snow packed on trail but with the warmer temps some areas very soft regardless and you'll suddenly break through and have one leg knee deep in the snow, careful! Great hike regardless.

Beautiful snowshoeing conditions! The trail is packed, so if you stay on trail you probably don't need snowshoes, but we ventured off a bit into the deep snow and had a lot of fun!

I wonder How my dad did this in a 1972 AMC Gremlin back in 1975....Mmm I guess he really knew how to drive though it did scare my older brother quite a bit lol

OMG road actually ends quickly and turns into a different road. The Omg road itself, yes, is easy and boring BUT once you keep going there are awesome old mines and history to enjoy.

I frequent this trail often as close to home, some sunny spots, nice views of Pikes Peak, a few moderate climbs. For the first time I noticed a lot more dog poop along the trail and litter discarded off the parking lot. I plan to head back tomorrow to pick up litter. Please hikers help me clean up after others, or if this is you - please pick up after yourself and after your dog.

Great for a quick, easy trail run. Packed snow, but snowshoes were unnecessary. Very pretty views.

Nothing special or off-roading if you ask me just steep up and wide a few mines to see but really boring.

Went out this morning, had a good amount of fresh snow seeing as it was coming down. Snowshoes were helpful!

Pretty easy hike. Did it last weekend with 3 inches of snow on the trail. Because it was minimal snow we did not use our snow shoes. Had some amazing views but would probably not do this one again. Check it off the list and move on. Took approx. 2.5 hrs did the Racoon Trail loop and panorama trail. Total mileage was about 6 miles. Hard to tell where we were with the snow! Enjoy :)

on Oh-My-God Road

before you transplants bash on this trail for not living up to it's name just understand this: this used to be an access road for the mines. Years and years ago they went through and fixed it so that it wasn't as dangerous to traverse. it got it's name before it was fixed. It was fixed because of the high volume of traffic.

I had a blast over the summer hiking this one with my Sister.

This was my first time running the trail, and we ran it going down. The upper section was pretty smooth going but Rocky in areas, with 2-4' snow drifts. But then the last 3 water crossings were tough because of the wall of ice at the end. The last two crossings I had to be towed out. And I wasn't the only one. Definitely do no wheel alone.
*Ground clearance, performance tires (air down), winch possible, & friends.

Went on this trail today, 2/24/19 and it was awesome! Good challenge spots with the ice and some creek crossing but overall great everyone! I made it up in a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser on 35’s and triple locked

Gets a bit tight halfway through to the turn around so brush marks are unavoidable. Worth the drive for sure, the turn around is beautiful and a good spot to camp for the night.

Amazing Drive, My family has been coming to Goose Creek Campground for a long time. If heading from the Denver area I recommend going through castle rock so you can hit a bit of rampart on the way to deckers. KEEP IN MIND NO CELL SERVICE AFTER CASTLE ROCK OR WOODLAND PARK. This road is extremely easy, we had towed many trailers through here, I have seen many sedans take this road as well. If your taking a day trip my recommendation is to start at the far end near lake George park it is easier to head through rampart up to castle rock Depending on where you live. It is a washboard road so it is a bit bumpy but nothing most stock cars can handle. No need for spotters take your time. Also to keep in mind when heading from deckers, once you get on dirt road only take lefts if you take rights it will lead you to cheeseman lake or a private horse ranch. Great views and it’s nice to see the land recover from the fire. Take you time and enjoy

Nice little detour starting I’ll pie on a ridge with views of pikes Peak and even the Tarryalls . Half way point hit on Rampart Range Road then reconnect with the trail probably 6 miles total

Great hike today. Perfect conditions, packed snow the entire way!

Great snow covered trail with panoramic vistas. Micro spikes were sufficient.
