Just drove the Kebler Pass from Crested Butte to Paonia State Park (July 26, 2014) and have never seen the abundance and density of wild flowers from the car window. Plus pilgrims are rewarded with amazing mountain vistas, and fresh, green aspens as far as the eye can see. The road is safe and easy to navigate in ANY type... More

We took a route south out of Carbondale and over Kebler Pass to get to Crested Butte in July. The wildflowers, aspen and scenery were really nice. The road was packed gravel and pretty smooth. Lost Lake is worth a good turn around point if you are just out sightseeing.

Great vistas ... stopped at Paradise and did a short hike. Cute little store, tours available hourly. Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory is there so there was a lot to see but from a distance.

There is so much to do & see. Talk about good eats, we hiked and ate our way around town. The shuttle was so convenient. The energy was fun!

Was my first trip up Kebler Pass. My sons assured me it would be fine! It was a beautiful day and the driving on the dirt road was no problem at all. It is an easy, peaceful beautiful drive. Most of the drive you are surrounded by Aspen trees for miles and miles and miles. I am told they are... More

Good route to take from the Grand Junction area. The road is gravel and a little rough in some area. Beautiful scenery and wildlife to be seen. Several places to take side trips or to stop for a picnic.

Great drive over the pass. The road is packed and smooth dirt, so beware if you are concerned about gravel roads. The scenery is amazing and cant be beat especially in July when the flowers are everywhere and the forest is alive. I would love to come here in the fall and see the trees changing. I guess I know...

Well maintained, smooth road that is mostly packed dirt. Open in the summer months. Incredibly lush scenery and the largest aspens I've seen. Well worth seeing.

An incredible drive through Aspen forests, profuse wildflowers, and wildlife. Truly, one of the greatest road trips you can take in Colorado!
