Idaho Springs Area 9/16/2012 Part I

Posted: October 3, 2012 in 4X4

Oh My God Road…

From a Four Wheel Drive standpoint this little trail is a breeze, this road is more for the scenery than anything else. Take Virginia canyon road north out of Idaho Springs Colorado and it turns into “Oh My God Road”.  The first 4 miles you are climbing out of the valley from Idaho Springs. There are spectacular views the whole way.  Being fall the colors were amazing! The last few miles are littered with old mines that really cater to the photographer. For the locals this a great way to hop from Idaho Springs to Central City that is fun a scenic. You’re other option is the monstrosity they call the “Central City Parkway”, a four lane asphalt blah trip.

Distance: 7.11 miles    Time: 45 minutes     Difficulty: 1 out of 10   Scenic Rating: 6 out of 10
