"The Corley Mountain Highway was originally the famous Cripple Creek Short Line Railroad, over which millions in gold ore was hauled in the heydey of 'the world's greatest gold camp.' The railroad was dismantled and the route converted into the scenic Corley Mountain Highway in 1924. It will be operated as a toll road under permit of the Federal Government until the owners are reimbursed for their investment ... this to be not later than 1939."
