“Montgomery Reservoir- Great side trip from highway 9 and Breckenridge”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Take county road 4 about 11 miles south of Breckenridge. It's a dirt road but drivable with a sedan, SUV would help, just go slow. The reservoir is beautiful and we were here in September and it was not crowded. You can drive all the way back to a waterfall and gold mine. Stay on the road going on the right side of the reservoir. Road gets pretty narrow but it' s drivable, some potholes, just go slow! When you get to the other side of the reservoir, there is a beautiful waterfall that has a trail to the deserted gold mine, takes 5 minutes to hike up too. Not strenuous at all but totally worth it.
