Mountain Biking Gold Camp Road

***   Add a review
#288 of 1,373 mountain bike trails in Colorado

This old rail bed leads from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek. The rail grade makes it a fairly gradual climb through the mountains and some beautiful terrain. You'll go through multiple tunnels so bring a light if you're afraid of the dark. After you've had enough riding, turn around for the quick descent back to the parking lot. About the first 10 miles of the road is closed to vehicular traffic (except dirt bikes, ATVs, etc.) but the rest shares the road with cars. If you're a wuss you can shuttle vehicles to make this an all downhill ride. Several trails diverge from this road as well.

Getting there
From Colorado Springs, take US 24 West towards Manitou Springs. Turn left onto 21st Street. Go about 4 miles and turn right onto W Cheyenne Blvd. Go about 1.5 miles and turn right into Cheyenne Canyon Park. Follow the road all the way up to the gravel parking lot (about 2-3 miles). Park here and follow the dirt road that begins at the back of the parking lot (heading up the hill).
