“Fall color and forever views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a do not miss drive especially when the fall colors are in full glory. Pack a lunch and picnic along the way. You end up in Big Cottonwood by Brighton and Solitude resorts.

“Jeeping fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Son & his wife took us twice over this pass for adventures. Enjoyed both days. One to Heber and then through a Wasatch State Park and the other to Park City area. Both this pass and the other areas have fantastic views.

“Stunning Views”

We drove this area and hiked along the way twice. Pack a lunch and enjoy it sitting on top of one of the mountains like we did.

“beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The road is closed for at least 4 months a year, depending on the weather. Summer or fall, however, the views and trees are absolutely beautiful. It's a great way to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere while actually being close to the Montage or the Homestead resorts. A gorgeous drive!
