San Miguel County, Colorado
At over 10,00 feet, this gentle Colorado pass provides great views of the southern part of the state. Suitable for all vehicle types, this is a great drive for someone who is not looking for a technical outing, but rather a less-traveled path through the Uncompahgre National Forest.
From Telluride: Head west out of town on W Colorado Ave approx 3.4 miles to CO-145 S. Turn left at CO-145 S and follow approx 12.0 miles towards pass.
Note that not all of the trails in an area will be open to all vehicle types. Follow the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM)s and signage for the area and ride only on trails open to and wider than your OHV.
