From the town of Jefferson, CO, just head south on Route 77 all the way past Tarryall Reservoir and continue down Route 77 till you run into US Hwy 24 and the town of Lake George, CO.
The scenery is wonderful. All kinds of wildlife were roaming the day we rode. This is particular stretch of Colorado mountain road covers some flat terrain but has multiple rock formations along the way. One looked like a small version of Devil's Tower. Also along the way you'll pass by and want to check out the Tarryall Reservoir.
The first 1/2 of the road is new pavement. The other part is paved also but older and has lots of potholes.
There isn't much along this road. No gas stations, or Food Marts. There is a Lake with restrooms about 1/2 way. Services can be found in Lake George, CO at the end of the run.
Here is a link to a slideshow of my entire trip. I put 1,200 miles over the 4th of july weekend across the CO western slope of south central mountains. Bagged a bunch of scenic roads. Might add a few roads and reviews soon. Check out this Online Photo Album
