The route starts just south of historic Cripple Creek, a major tourist attraction and gambling town. Many historic mining attractions can be seen from paved Highways 67 and 81 which circle through Victor and Goldfield. The loop described here is a longer and more rugged backcountry route and part of the Gold Belt Tour. Shelf Road offers many miles of rugged side roads that depart west of Sand Gulch Campground and Red Canyon Park and north of “The Bank” Campground. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed on side roads but not on Shelf Road and Phantom Canyon Road. Rock climbers can enjoy “The Bank,” a popular climbing area. Red Canyon Park is a great family area with picnic tables tucked between dramatic red rock formations. Phantom Canyon Road follows an old railroad grade and has a rich mining history. Shelf Road is rough and steep in places. High clearance is helpful, but the road, when dry, can be driven in 2-wheel drive. You’ll feel more secure with 4-wheel drive when the road is wet. Phantom Canyon Road can be driven in any passenger car but is restricted to vehicles shorter than 25 feet. Both roads are susceptible to overnight washouts from major storms and may be closed without notice.
