“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Drove the pass in mid October. Most of the Aspens were done blooming but the scenery was amazing. Once you get to the top turn around and come back the way you came. Many good photo opportunities and a great view of Georgetown.

“Don't Miss the Bighorn Sheep!”

My wife and I took a ride to the top of the Guanella Pass and were delighted to enjoy the Bighorn Sheep pecking at bits of salt in the roadway…beautiful, majestic creatures!

Scenery was fantastic. Aspens were in full autumn color and the drive up and over the pass was very pretty.

Fall colors, snow on mountain tops, little traffic, beautiful scenic drive. Wish there were more places to pull over and take photos.

“Spectacular scenery / easy hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

If you like hikes on clearly marked trails above tree line, go here! The views are spectacular and you can't get lost.
