Written Directions

The route is really easy to find and follow. Just get to Deckers Colorado and go west/northwest on Deckers Road (CO Rt 126) all the way up as it turns north and goes through Pine, Colorado and meets up with US Hwy 285. Go east on 285 into Pine Junction.

Scenery

This one of the most, if not the most, famous sport bike roads in Colorado!! It is not too far from Denver or Colorado Springs so a lot of folks make weekend journeys to pay omage to Horsepower Hill. The scenery of the area is mountain terrain within remote and mostly heavily forested land. You'll be able to see a number of mountain peaks such as Green Mountain, Sugerloaf Peak, Little Scraggy Peak, Long Scraggy Peak, Cathedral Spires, and Banner Peak.

Road Quality

The reason this is a beloved road to the "sport-bikers" is because of the challenging terrain. The road snakes its way through valleys and over peaks resulting in an abbundance of tight turns and elevation changes and a few sweeping turns to allow for a change of pace. Road conditions are good throughout the route. You'll see plenty of other riders out there on the weekends pushing their machines into the turns and up the hills!

Roadside Amenities

The area is pretty remote but you will see (on the weekends) a few hangouts along the way where the parking lots are full of motorcycles!
