The Pikes Peak region has premier quality motorized trails. Trails range from easy site seeing to hard core four-wheel drive where special equipment is required and everything in between. Many trailheads are an easy hour or two drive from Colorado Springs with spectacular views along the way. Most full-size trails are open to all motorized and non-motorized vehicle use. Other trails 50″ wide or less are open to motorized and non-motorized vehicle use of any type 50″ wide or narrower vehicles. As a rule for mountain driving the vehicle coming uphill has the right of way.
Where to Go
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.
