The Bachelor Loop is a great experience. I recommend starting at the north end of town. You will understand why I say that when you round the first corner headed up towards the mines. If you don't have time to make the entire loop, just...More

Such an interesting, historical drive of the mining area. Drive slowly -- Keep looking up to see very old wooden structures associated with the mining. The rock formations and the creek running down the middle are very scenic.

If you are visiting Creede in the summer or Fall months, this is a must! The views are gorgeous and the air was crisp and clean. I loved seeing the old mines on the mountain ... some are still operating. You will need a 4...More
