Beautiful fall colors!

A wonderful drive from Glenwood Springs to Crested Butte. This pass offers wonderful scenery, and is a good road - even if it is a dirt road.

We went over Memorial weekend. The road was actually in great shape! The views of the mountains around Lost Lake were great. Good to see them covered in so much snow still. It rained hard and the drive back was pretty muddy but nothing too exciting. We'll try to get in another trip or two before the tourist traffic jams... More

Definitely worth the drive if you take the time. the color was spectacular and the mountains were pretty nice too. Looked like there were lots of recreational opportunities off the road if you allowed the time.

This is like so very many of the passes in Colorado which takes nothing away from it. there is a lake which makes it more special but awsome is awsome no matter how often it is available to see.

Caught the end of the aspen turning. Well worth the drive. Road was a little (ok a lot) bumpy but passable without 4wd.

We drive over Kebler Pass whenever we're in the area, family lived in Crested Butte, now over in Delta County. This year, we drove over the last week in September, aspens were peaking & absolutely stunning. We even got snowed on which was fun & extra beautiful! The spruce trees were wonderful with a blanket of snow. The pass closes... More

We have been twice and it is well worth the drive for the views and wildlife. Make sure it is open during snow months. We look forward to seeing more of the trails once we know the area better. You have to see the mountain waterfalls with snow with your eyes because the phone or camera do not do it... More

We went the first weekend of Oct. Missed peak by about a week. Better off going end of September. It was still quite beautiful. Not a ton of traffic either.
