Visitor Tips and News About Ames Brothers Pyramid
The road into the Ames Brothers Pyramid has been graded and worked into wonderful condition! Don't let fear of ruts scare you off. It sits literally just off the interstate so it won't cost you any time loss bigger than a bathroom break.[Donna Taylor, 07/30/2012]
1.8 miles of pure bumpy dirt road, but well worth the drive. So close to the freeway you can't pass it up when you drive by.[famwkidz, 06/29/2012]
We agree. The Ames Brothers Pyramid is stark, strange, and only a couple of minutes off an interstate exit.
The dirt road is 1.8 miles to the pyramid. It can be bumpy![Lisa Gorog, 04/05/2012]
The 2-mile road is washboard all the way. If you're towing a vehicle or trailer, you can easily unhook by I-80. Well worth the trip, lots of cool red granite littering the surrounding area, and a great view![Skyler1967, 07/09/2010]
