The road is open to traffic throughout the year, though little traffic passes in the winter months.

A remnant of the Pikes Peak gold mining days, Gold Camp Rd connects Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek, with many other dirt roads and trails connecting.

This dirt road runs for miles and allows for some creative routes.
