Where is It:
This road can be accessed from 9 just south of Alma, CO; 4.5 miles north of Fairplay, CO / US285.
It is located .1 miles just before the switch back to go up the rougher section of CR12 (Mosquito Pass).

Length of Road:
.7 Miles

How Challenging:
I would rank this a 6
Large rocks, ledges, narrow, and Water crossing with a steep angle and awkward layout.

My Take:
You get a great view. There is also a split off that looks to go higher up, maybe to another mine! However this section is listed as a County Road. This also prepares you for what Mosquito Pass will be somewhat like, and is much shorter, and less of a worry about going off a cliff.
