State Highway 67

Home » Guides » Colorado » State Highway 67

Colorado 67 is split into six sections that generally follow the same north-south corridor but are separated by segments of locally maintained roadway or overlap with other state maintained highways. The southern section (Route 067A) connects Colorado 96 at Wetmore with Colorado 115 (Robinson Avenue) in Florence, a distance of 11.05 miles. Route 067B extends Colorado 67 north 3.51 miles from Colorado 115 in Florence to U.S. 50. Fremont County 67 and Teller County 86 (Phantom Canyon Road) link the the state highway from U.S. 50 with Route 067C at Victor. The third section runs 5.17 miles north from Victor Avenue and 4th Street to the Cripple Creek city limits.

SH 67 was turned over to local control through Cripple Creek, with state maintenance resuming northward as Route 067F. This 17.35 mile section takes SH 67 north to U.S. 24 at Divide. An overlap with U.S. 24 leads east to Woodland Park, where Route 067D commences a 23.12 mile drive north to Deckers at the intersection with County Road 75 and 126 (Deckers Road). After a locally maintained section between Deckers and Rampart Ridge Road, Colorado 67 resumes again (Route 67E) 10.10 miles en route to U.S. 85 in Sedalia.
