This video compresses a 45-minute drive into a 15-minute spin through the scenery of North Cheyenne Canon in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Gold Camp Road.
The first part of the video features Gold Camp Road. Gold Camp Road is now what was once The Short Line Railroad bed that stretched from Cripple Creek to Colorado Springs. Gold was brought down from the mining camp on The Short Line. The drive takes you through two railroad tunnels, multiple rock cuts and over old trestles with sheer drop offs into the canyon below. It winds for over 30 miles but due to tunnel cave ins along the route, you have to drive it in sections. This is the short section of the road that is accessible from town. You can drive all the way through to Cripple Creek if you begin on Old Stage Road (which criss-crossed the rail bed multiple times), and bypass the caved in tunnels.
The second half of the video takes place on the High Drive, an old carriage road from the 1800s.
