A world-class four wheeling bucket list route. Include Lead King Basin for a great day on the trail. Can be done in a small to medium 4x4 with good clearance, but your vehicle must have low range available. Don't try this in your RAV 4 or Ford Escape, you won't make it. For a superb day, start in Crested Butte,... More

We went up Schofield Pass several times to launch hikes -- 401, West Maroon Pass, East Maroon Pass, Judd Falls and our scary but exciting drive down the Devils Punch Bowl. I would recommend a high clearance vehicle. Do not bring you sedan up this road. Lots of great campsites to choose from and generally very easy drive. Be aware... More

What an experience! This is the second time we have been here. Coming back up the punch bowl it was raining and very slippery, i was a little nervous. Views are incredible. Make sure you wait for other jeeps etc to come all the way up or down before going down, there is not much of a place to pass

This is the start of the Crested Butte to West Maroon Pass hike. It is gorgeous and would get five stars if it weren't for all the toilet paper that's littered about near the trail head! Pathetic. We saw several tents and there didn't appear to be a toilet. Really sad to see so much human destruction.

My husband and I took the drive from Crested Butte to Gothic then on to Schofield Pass and Paradise Divide and then back down to Crested Butte. The roads were in good condition but quite narrow in places. We drove a 4x4 Toyota FJ Cruiser that did great. The wildflowers are spectacular this year. I highly recommend this drive for... More

the whole drive from Gothic is on SCENIC but marginal gravel road and the final quarter-mile approach from the north is on sketchy, narrow one lane road on a cliffside over a lake, once passed that thrilling part everything is better and the scenery justifies the terror

We drove over Schofield Pass in July 2015 in our trail rated Jeep Grand Cherokee. The wildflowers in the third week of July are really quite beautiful. There are parts of the road that are a little scary because there are no guardrails and you climb to get over the pass, but the road is reasonably well maintained. I highly... More

Beautiful mountain biking and hiking but very narrow, tough road to negotiate! One should not be faint of heart!

It for the faint of heart.....as an experience 4 wheel explorer, this pass is extreme. The road is bumpy and narrow. With the increased rain fall this season, it is rutted. There are several water crossing which require a high profile vehicle. It was unbelievable to see passenger cars farther up the road than they should be. . .most had... More

We rode up here from Gothic to ride the 401 trail. Wow. Views are amazing. Almost unreal. It is a pretty steep climb. Views from the 401 were awesome too. Make sure you have your camera. Coming from Gothic a low clearance vehicle won't cut it either.
