You can park at the top of Molas Pass and take a gander at the mountains there, which are beautiful. But if you want more of a mountain experience, with a little time and effort, park just off 550 south of Molas Lake (east side of the highway) and begin your hike down for a great view of the Grenadiers. In a little less than a mile, you will come to an outcropping of rock that looks to the northeast at a line of jagged peaks. You can also look down into the valley and see a tiny piece of the Animas River and the D&SNGRR alongside. The wildflowers will be in bloom from the middle of July on. Don't miss this short hike.
The Molas Trail on the west side of 550 takes you up mostly above timber line. Fantastic mountain scenery.
Note that summer afternoon showers in July and August mean an early start on the trail if you don't want to get wet.
