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

Beautiful back country scenery and an exciting drive to get to the pass. Amazing views and the streams were running full from a great snow season. We spent the afternoon by a waterfall on the east fork of the south fork of the Crystal River. Great Experience and a wonderful time with very good friends. Something to always remember.

It is hard to find a prettier place. This is a start (or end) to one of the greatest hikes in Colorado...Crested Butte to Aspen. I've been here many times and never tire of the drive or the views. I look forward to it every year.

I have been operating 4x4s in Colorado since 1978. Schofield Pass is my favorite. It is extremely narrow!!! When it says only for "Narrow high lift 4x4s with EXPERIENCED drivers" It is not kidding! In years past, I have run the pass ina Jeep CJ7. Last year I decided to run it in my 2013 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. I was... More

The road should be traveled by four-wheel only for un-experienced drivers. From the Crested Butte side, you'll pass through the valley that is known throughout the state for its beautiful spring blooms. At the summit is the trail head to the famous 401 biking an hiking trail. The first 3/4 mile is all uphill, but once at the top, the... More

So narrow and steep. No guard rails - you'll cry if you come to another car going in the opposite direction! Seriously!

Scenic route is incredible. So much so that when I took a picture from my window of my car the photo appeared well thought out and structured.

A good portion of this road is super easy and can be traversed in a rental suv. However the section devil's punch bowl should only be attempted by experienced off roaders with the appropriate rig. We took the pass up from marble last week (9/18/2013) to the bridge then turned around. The excessive rain in colorado over the past few... More

The actual pass is a little daunting, but the drive to it is one of the more spectacular drives in Colorado. Simply beautiful!

Not a technically challenging trail (devils punch bowl requires a little more skill), but extremely scenic. Some of the trails are slightly precarious with drop offs on either side. To travel the full trail I would definitely recommend short wheelbase, lifted, and a somewhat experienced driver.
