You need clearance...trust me

The drive is worth it, but its bumpy and not for those that get carsick. We hiked from near the top down to a couple of lakes - quiet and peaceful. Weather moves in fast, so... read more

We thought we would try to drive to Yankee doodle lake in a 2015 Ford Explorer. We made it up the rough and rocky road about 4 miles before turning around. We could have kept going, but risk of damage was too high. Great views. Single lane in many places. Ideal for jeeps and motorcycles. June 21, 2015.

The drive is worth it, but its bumpy and not for those that get carsick. We hiked from near the top down to a couple of lakes - quiet and peaceful. Weather moves in fast, so watch the sky and take rain/temp precautions. Sedans, stay at home. Unless they are rentals. :)

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
