Interesting and challenging hike (up to about 20,000 ft.) is off Kebler Pass. Drive to and thru the pass is beautiful.

All wrong rode the harley with my wife on the back. 45 mph easily. I assume the scary comments are from people whom cannot drive or generally find driving a car scary? Drive... More

If you like picturesque drives and have the right vehicle, this is great. You can watch the trees and scenery shift; be prepared to stop for sheep and mountain goats crossing. in the summer, look for wildflowers. But drivers, don't take your eyes off the road!!!

We drove this from Crested Butte to Carbondale. In my opinion the drive is very manageable in any vehicle. It takes a while to get all the way through but if you have the time, enjoy it. There are massive Aspen groves, I can only imagine how gorgeous it is in the fall.

The drie from Crested Butte to Aspen via Kebler Pass was positively awe inspiriing! The aspen groves are like none we had ever seen before, even though we have been coming to Colorado for 30+ years. No words can find the description for the drive over the Pass...bring a picnic lunch. Stop among the trees and ferns, breathe and enjoy!

Relax, take in the v i e w s. They are mass i v e, huge. Yep, I call it her Purple Mountain Majesty. Think of our great song, "O Beautiful, for spacious skies..." Bingo - there you go. If your in Crested Butte, have time, and Kebler Pass is open - GO - do a Road Trip!

I have always wanted to drive Kebler Pass and I'm glad I did, it was the most beautiful drive I have taken in a while. I can't wait to go back in the fall to see the Aspens. And like other people didn't know about the road but it was fine I was driving a van and it handle the... More

great drive over Kebler pass and several more miles to turn off up to Lost Lake. Take picnic lunch to Lost Lake and then hike up trails to 2 other higher lakes. Best go in late sept when aspens turn golden. Drive thru large aspen forests. amazing
