Georgia Pass Road (South Fork Swan) #355

  

This 4WD road passes the town site of Parkville, the main mining camp in Summit County during the gold rush of the 1860s. All that remains now of the once bustling town is the cemetery, which can be accessed via a short hike. From Parkville to the summit, stay on the main road because a number of the intersecting roads are dead-ends. The summit is an open, grassy saddle with spectacular views of Mt. Guyot to the west. The road continues over Georgia Pass on a gravel road into Park County and down to the Michigan Creek Campground, which is located in the South Park Ranger District of the Pike/San Isabel National Forest.
