“A former railroad grade with a steady climb. Gets you to the good stuff!”
— The Kraken
No restrictions but most of it is open to vehicles. Can be dusty on sunny weekend days
This road is a very steady climb. It starts out paved at the top of the Chutes trail, then quickly turns to dirt as you head uphill. After another mile or so you'll pass the parking lot at the bottom of Captain Jack's
trail, just before entering Tunnel #1. (Off to the left before the tunnel is the Spring Creek trail, which connects to Columbine Trail
A few more miles and another tunnel later, you'll reach the parking lot at the top of the Cheyenne Canon paved road. Continue through the lot, through the metal gate, and you'll soon reach the bottom of Buckhorn
trail. If you make a sharp turn left on the road at the end of the canyon, you've gone too far.
