Impossible to explain the views. This is a must see and do when traveling to Colorado/Breckenridge. I really took well over 600 photos from my trip and each one tells a story. I will return soon more »
What a great way to spend a few hours. Starts out on asphalt then gravel. Even has places to go 4 wheel drive trails. Beautiful views. Make time for this! more »
