Very rough road for a 4 wheel drive. We rode the road with our RZR what a great time! We had friends with us, first time for them. Second time for me both times were great. This is a old rail road with old wooden bridges to view and tunnel.

You can drive it in the summer or snowmobile it in the winter. The road goes to the top of the Continental divide and is the former railroad route before Moffat Tunnel was built. GREAT views!

Was much more impressive when I was a kid - but it is still worth the time and effort to do the drive.

Great scenery but very rough road. Recommend 4wheel drive vechicle but did see a couple of cars trying it. We were in 4whel drive pick up and did experience a flat tire. Rollins pass was cold in August. Recommend bringing a jacket for the top -- there was snow.

The view from the top was well worth the cold ride! We rode up right before sunset and had a great time.

West side by Winter Park was a decent road to top and beautiful scenery up high, but east side the road was not good for regular cars.

First: This is a rough road. We were in a Jeep Wrangler and glad of it. No way would I take my 'street car' up here. Second: Beautiful scenery. You really feel you're escaping into the wilds soon after you turn off Hwy 40. Recommendation: We parked right by the trestle and hiked up to Roger's Pass. You can see... More

This was once the highest-altitude non-cog rail route in America, but not economic because of heavy snowfall and supplanted by the Moffat Tunnel in 1928. We set out to drive to Rollins Pass as my sister and I had been there as kids (my dad actually drove over dilapitaded trestles back then) and there wasn't much else interesting to do... More
