Probably should have stessed in the OP

Please note, it's weekends only through (per last night's news) the end of September.

Good news! Now, once they open it up on weekdays, I can do my little after work adventure ride up to Victor, or Cripple Creek. I can then take HWY24 back home, or Shelf Rd, or Phantom Canyon....all good options!!



Thanks Dave!

I'll be looking for the news conference. I wouldn't be opposed to waiting at the gate to be 1st up and to go look for more new gates that sprouted during the gate growing season.

Been riding up there with no one around...this is sad news now the yahoos will be back up there trashing the place, shooting up the trees and just too many people.

A rider went up Old Stage with no issues 2 weeks back, it's been open ;-)

Found it:

Gazette:

Crews will open the road at 5 p.m. Friday and close it at 7 a.m. Tuesday, said Dave Rose, a county spokesman. It will re-open every weekend until repairs are complete - at which point, all closures will be lifted.

I prefer that route anyway, way less traffic and idiots playing rally racer in Old Stage. Its bad enough farther up Gold Camp as it is.
Good news none the less.

Why would you take Old Stage Rd, tunnel route is easy and no one on it...LOL Also more scenic too.

I like em both, but mostly prefer to go up via the tunnel route and down via Old Stage. Makes for a fun short ride close to home.

Most importantly, the re-opening means Gold Camp east of the county line is legal again.

As for idiots behaving like children, I'm hoping to see increased enforcement up there with the new guy in charge of Pike NF.
