One of the best routes for Aspen viewing, Gold Camp Road, is closed to through traffic. Workers are making mandatory safety improvements and historical improvements to one of Gold Camp's famous tunnels. The road was closed on Monday, Sept. 27, and will open in about six weeks.
Drivers and cyclists can still use Gold Camp, but those traveling westbound from Colorado Springs will have to turn around at FSR 376 (Seven Lakes Road). Eastbound traffic from the Cripple Creek/Victor area will be turned around at mile marker 6.7 (Cathedral Park).
