High country magic. Hiking, biking, motorcycle, horse back riding....what is the outdoors calling to you about? Kebler pass is a close to services but far enough you can get away. Falls colors this is the place to go.

Traveling thru and came across the Kebler pass and said why not, it will take us where we are going anyway! So glad we did! That had to be the biggest Aspen Grove I have ever seen. I can just imagine the beauty when the leaves change in the fall. Would love to go back and see when they do... More

Driving from Aspen to Crested Butte via Kebler Pass on a cloudless fall day, provided stunning views of blue sky above golden aspen valleys and woods! It was my first Fall visit to Colorado and the naturall beauty in this season of yellow/gold took my breath away and left me with vivid memories. Maybe we were just lucky with the... More

My wife and I were on a road trip in Colorado in mid-September 2015, and I made a point of driving this route on our way to Crested Butte from Durango, in in hopes of seeing lots of fall foliage color. We would have seen lots of gold, if we had been a week or so later. The Aspen leaves... More

Gorgeous fall colors and mountains abound! Travel does not require 4-wheel drive and there are numerous pull-offs for some amazing photo-ops!! Views constantly change with early morning and late afternoon light, but you can't go wrong with any of them!

We went pretty far in the car. We stopped regularly to walk and view. Road was in ok condition. We had a four wheel. We turned around when we didn't know how far and where were going. Lots of bikers and hikers. Horseback and rock climbing.

You can take typical car on this area without too much worry. Nice pull-offs and panoramas. Like most mountain roads, you want to keep driving to see what is around the corner.

The aspen were peaking in color. The road was much better than I expected. Access to hiking trails and wonderful sightseeing.

It is 30-35 miles long. It begins on the eastern side near a small town Crested Butte. Initially it is paved for a few miles. Then it changes into a well maintained gravel road. It is passable for all kinds of motor vehicles when it is dry. I drove it at the end of September when the Aspens had turned... More
