just visiting from Kansas.

Going to get into Manitou springs on June 1st was wanting to do some sightseeing ( wheeling ) in that area. I was looking at going down by Cripple Creek, checking on phantom canyon road, shelf road, teller one ,high park road. Was wondering how tough they maybe. Or getting some suggestion for others in the area.not to difficult but scenic. Been looking on trail damage.

Great area. A lot of trails close by with great views. I'm right outside of MS, Rampart range rd, Old Stage Rd are good areas too!

Old stage road to cripple creek then back to victor then down phantom canyon would be a fun drive for the both of you. Get to gamble if thats what you're into.
