Absolutely gorgeous. You will find yourself singing, "The hills are alive...." when you reach this pass. Plenty of room for parking and taking in the truly spectacular scenery. Mother Nature gets a five star review!

Great views here of the mountains and alpine meadows. Lots of parking, restrooms, and informative plaques. Great place to take a quick break on a drive along the Million Dollar Highway.

We drove up this pass to explore our favorite mountain range, the San Juans! High altitude and scenic mountain views of this young jagged range are awesome. Highly recommended even if you have to take the most dangerous road in Colorado- Red Mountain Pass!
