  • Took the Kebler Pass road all the way across to Rte 133 and on to Carbondale. It is rough in places but the highway crew was 'planing' the road when I drove thru. It is very narrow in places and not b...  more »
  • If someone - like - we visited just after Colorado because of the Indian summer (mid-September to mid-October) is so it necessarily the Kebler Pass Road to the heart set. We came from Gunnison and did stop first in Crested Butte. A stop is recommended in any case. Many nice and interesting shops, at the western end of the main street a great artisan Cafe. A quick trip to the mountain resort or in the direction of Schofield pass (many hiking possibilities E.g. to jud falls) is also worthwhile goal. The road there is not paved, but up to a parking lot marked with any car with some caution and prudence passable. Quite exciting - like ours - if a Scharzbär cross the road. The road from Crested Butte over the Kebler Pass is only partly paved; mostly, you are driving on one - in dry weather - very solid Earth / dirt road. Arrived at the end of the road, you must have at least 2 x through the car wash before you recognize his car. The drive can be moved only in slow tempo. Who's driving this way but as a tourist, anyway not hurry. Too often remains on a short or long hike to make or in the autumn, the colors of the Indian summer in all its splendor and glory to the fullest to enjoy.
