Definitely a 4 wheel drive road but beautiful views. Did run into a camper who asked what day of the week it was. That is going native.

My husband & I drove over this Pass (from Gothic to Marble) quite by accident several years ago. We were in a Chevy Caprice, ignored the signs until it was too late to turn back. The trip was the most horrible day of my life! It took us over 4 hours for the <10 mile trip. DO NOT DRIVE! Hike... More

Beautiful hiking trails, well marked. Gorgeous mountain views and wildflowers. Streams and sunny blue skies, met lots of friendly people while hiking. Stunning views.

One of the most beautiful single track bike rides in the world. Coming down from the back side of Maroon Bells, the vistas of the valley are breathtaking! And the flowers in the summer are so big, you think you are in the Land of the Giants!

Just an amazing climb and you feel accomplished when you get to there. 10,707 feet elevation and when you ride a mountain bike from the small town of Gothic up to Schofield pass the thrill of knowing you are almost on trail 401 and headed back down. Epic ride!

July 2014 - The 401 trailhead is located at the top of Schofield Pass. This trail is quite popular among mountain bikers for a good reason--the surrounding mountains and wildflowers are breathtakingly beautiful! The 401 trail is a medium-hard trail. I found the hardest parts to be the uphill and the altitude. The first ~45 minutes of single track are... More

We traveled from Crested Butte over Kebler pass, all the way to Marble, CO, and tried to negotiate Schofiled Pass. We had a Honda Pilot which soon overheated, so we had to turn around. Later in the week, we started up the other side from Gothic, above Crested Butte. We did not figure we would go all the way, although... More

Did the first 3 miles at peak wildflower season - spectacular! In September I plan to do the entire trail from Aspen to Crested Butte, so this was an excellent appetizer!

So, I read all the reviews and still couldn't figure out if we could actually drive to the pass. I went this way today an am writing to clarify. The road beyond Gothic, the "ghost town" is unpaved, but in the summer, on a dry day, is perfectly drive able in a regular car (we had a Chevy Captiva). There... More
