OTC Editor’s Note:

Old Stage Road is a dirt road that connects Colorado Springs to mining towns of Victor and Cripple Creek through the Pikes Peak foothills. Road conditions can vary greatly depending on the section and time of year. The road is flanked by a steep embankment for much of the path, offering access to a number of outdoor recreation destinations, including St. Peter’s Dome and Gray Back Peak.

This is a developing story.
