Phantom Canyon

A beautiful drive in Colorado

In the Summer of 2019, my kids and I visited Colorado, while there we found this awesome road, it starts just outside of Canon City, Colorado and runs through the bottom of Phantom Canyon to the town of Victor, Colorado and the active gold mine next to it, it's not a fast drive but it's not hard core off roading either, it is a scenic dirt road that is 2 way but is narrow enough that you do have to be careful for traffic coming the other way, it is easily passable for a 2 wheel drive vehicle, at least when we went in the summer, it might be a different story this time of year, the only time I put my truck in 4wd was when we took a side trail down to the creek, if you are ever in Canon City, Colorado I highly recommend taking this drive.

There are 2 of these small tunnels you will go through on the drive, watch for oncoming traffic as there is only room for 1 vehicle at a time.
