Definitely recommend using the 504 and not the 503. We had no problem in a mini-van with lower clearance. Height of fall colors made this a breathtaking drive.

If you find your self any where near Creede you must get here and do this drive. The route circles around in the mountains behind the town. Very scenic. A must stop on the route is the Last Chance Mine. Great story and great people.

This is a delightful loop from Creede Many old mines that are accessible from the road. Plan on a few hours to fully enjoy the area.

Incredible scenery with amazing history. My family loved it! 4 wheel drive will make the trip easier. The historical mine buildings are very cool to see. Wish we had taken the tour.

The road is gravel. We visited both ends because our vehicle didn't allow us to travel a gravel road in the rain. We'll go back with our other vehicle so we can take the entire tour.
