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.
