The next destination was Cripple Creek, via phantom Canyon. It is a very well-groomed old railbed.

The biggest challenge was avoiding the oncoming vehicles that were driving like they were practicing for the Pike's Peak climb.



Although it is well-groomed, it is certainly very narrow and twisty:
