Getting There & Away

Cripple Creek is 50 miles southwest of Colorado Springs on scenic Hwy 67.

If you've got a vehicle that's suitable for a little off-road driving, there's more than one road in and out. Thrill-seekers heading back to Colorado Springs might want to check out the Old Gold Camp Rd out of Victor. It’s narrow, in poor shape and its tunnels are reputedly haunted, but the views are amazing. It's a hair-raising 1½ to two hours down to the Springs.

More spectacular, less terrifying and a little less haunted are Phantom Canyon and Shelf Road, both of which lead to Cañon City.

Alternatively, catch the Casino Shuttle from Colorado Springs.
