  • Unbelievable views! We drove over from Telluride for the day looking to get away from the city and closer to the mountains. It was the perfect choice. The higher you go the more challenging the drive. But the scenery near the top is worth it. 4x4 vehicle with some good ground clearance is recommended and is almost a must for the final leg of the drive.
  • Take your car as far as it can go and just hike up -you will love every second of it. Just bring pants and a rain jacket -it hailed on me last week right as I reached the base of mount Sneffels
  • Super scenery
