Buckskin Pass came highly recommended from a friend, and the hike did not disappoint. Definitely get an early start on it to get out ahead of the Maroon Bells crowd (and snag a good parking spot). There was a little snow up top in early...More

Yes. The real Buckskin Pass is really into the mountains from Aspen Highlands. That section of Colorado Springs has many streets named for passes, including Gunshot Pass Dr, Mosquito Pass, Trout Creek Pass, Monarch Pass, Mosca Pass, Tennessee Pass, Venable Pass, Poncha Pass and Stony Pass. These streets essentially surround a more major street: Whimsical Drive.
