We travelled the Kebler Pass in early October and found the views to be beautiful. The road is smooth packed dirt for the most part, although there are several short sections where it's paved. It's easily driven by car, but if you turn off on some of the side roads, like Ohio Pass, you may want to have a higher... More

this was a great easy drive up in the mountains just outside of town. We also went to Irwin lake and had some great shots of the leaves changing colors.

We were lucky that Crested Butte had some snow before our visit, so we got to see the beautiful contrast of Fall gold with Winter white. Just stunning!

Golden color gone in Oct, due to weather and early snow. Road was great. However, 4x4 or AWD maybe needed if one want to go deeper into Ohio pass.

What a beautiful drive. The trees were just starting to change. The weather was excellent. Road is not paved but well maintained. Many campers along the way. Places to stop and take photos, have a picnic or just take a long walk. I highly recommend the drive.

So if you were told by a know it all not to take you rental on this road, understand they are not correct. This is a county maintained labeled road and as such rental vehicles are covered when on it. Second the road is not scary, it is beautiful. Take your camera and extra SD cards as you will be... More

Drive about 8 miles out to see the best views. The aspens are gorgeous in the fall. The road is windy will steep drop offs so be careful.

Kebler Pass is one of the best places to go in Colorado to photograph the fall colors. It is worth the drive. Plan on all day from anywhere in the surrounding area. Stay in Crested Butte is a good idea. The road is dirt and the counties take care with Magnesium Chloride to keep the dust down. It is a... More

This drive was spectacular! We enjoyed the best foliage we have ever seen! The drive was easy and every turn had stunning views. There were some dirt roads along with some paved areas. This pass is must if you want to see some awesome foliage!

The stands of aspen in the Pass are among the world's largest, and most fun. Grabbed the camera to go, despite dire warnings of a "bad year" by Colorado professional nature photographers. Ohiuo and Kebler Passes were glorious. Delightful drives.
