Trail Overview

This is a fun, scenic drive through San Isabel National Forest. The road west of the pass is well maintained, with plenty of room for two-way traffic. East of the pass is rougher in spots, and varies in width from two to one vehicle wide. The pass can be travelled in either direction, and does not require high clearance. Portions of the route are open range, so watch out for cattle. The route offers access to three trailheads.

Deep Snow
We started up the trail and quickly needed 4WD due to snow melt making the road muddy. A few minutes up the pass we hit deep snow, if you have traction boards and patience you could have made it further than us. Be heading back in a couple days and we’ll update.
