After visiting Georgetown Co we decided to take the long way back to Denver by going over guanella pass. It is definitely a beautiful scenic drive.The drive itself doesn't take very long a couple hours at most. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreational activities here as well, such as camping, hiking, picnicing, photo oops and more. Starting from... More

This is a very beautiful drive, either in a 4 wheel drive vehicle or an all terrain vehicle. Several mines along the way to sight see at and most likely you will see deer, sheep and possibly elk or moose, depending on the time of the year.

A windy path up a mountain, with lovely views all around and down into the valley, and the town of Georgetown.

Drove this route last fall and experienced the breathtaking scenery and beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Do not miss out on this overlooked drive! Take your time and enjoy. Several places to stop and get out in nature to fully enjoy!

For anyone shying away from this drive because less than half of the total mileage is paved need not worry. We did the drive twice today (both directions) in a Hyundai Elantra with no issues at all! The drive is really spectacular with each curve revealing a new vista. The actual pass is at about 11,600 feet of elevation and... More

Wind your way through beautiful Georgetown and follow the signs to Guanella Pass. It is a mountain drive with wildlife and wildflowers and waterfalls. There are pull offs where you can get some pictures. Right now they are working on the road on the other side of the pass, but it is passable!! We were in a VW Passat and... More

We left Georgetown via Guanella Pass which used to be a gravel road which has been slowly being paved for the past 7 years & is not complete yet. It took us about 2 hours with 3 stops for construction & parts are very dusty. But the view is beautiful and the lakes are spectacular. It is worth the trip... More
