We will be travelling from Fort Collins to the Cedar Pass Lodge, and the route given by Google Maps suggests going through Nebraska – we’d got pretty excited about this, only for crossing it off our list of states! Anyway, having re-visited the route I am concerned about the state of some of the roads. We’ll be in a rental car so want to stay away from unpaved roads, but having looked on Google Streetview I am worried that some of the roads suggested are barely even roads (actually, the Streetview car hasn’t been down some of them).
Can anyone give me the best, i.e. quickest, route from Fort Collins to the Cedar Pass Lodge, avoiding unpaved roads as far as possible? If it includes a diversion through Nebraska I will accept a minor detour!
The route options on Google are here:
This is the MapQuest route to Interior:
None of the roads in the MapQuest route are marked as unpaved in the directions, which I have seen them do before, so does that mean that this option is ok?
I know it’s a long way, and parts of the ‘shortest’ (distance) routes go through some very isolated areas, so I really want to make sure the roads are going to be ok before we get set on one route.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
