Beautiful!

Love driving over Kebler Pass in September when aspen is golden. Can't beat the views. Gravel road, but well maintained.

Beautiful drive with a plethora of views with snow capped mountain peaks, the hugest aspens in the world, high desert vistas, rushing mountain streams. Agree with the review from a couple of days ago....if you are here to sightsee just pull over and let faster guys move on through. Either they are locals going to work/home & they deserve our...

After two unsuccessful attempts to find lots of wildflowers on Gothic Road or Washington Gulch Road out of Crested Butte, we finally decide to get on Rt #12, which leads us through the Kebler Pass. And what a reward we get! Fabulous, fabulous wildflowers surround us, the road is a joy to drive (unlike the other two) and the views... More

Kebler Pass between Crested Butte and Paonia is a treasure of beauty, vistas and perhaps the largest network of a single aspen in the world. The dirt road is very navigable and typically ( except when it rains a lot) 4 wheel drive is not required. There are so many beautiful vistas and if you are there in the fall... More

We took this highway to Marble, Co. Don't expect it to be a fast drive, but enjoy the scenery as you go. There are several spots to stop and enjoy the scenery. You travel through open areas and wooded spots. A lot of places along the edges with little ponds or lakes of water too. I would recommend everyone that... More

Kebler pass is 90% non paved road from Paonia to Crested Butte . From Aspen , to Carbondale , to Kebler Pass, to Crested Butte. It is the quickest way by many hours form Aspen to Crested Butte. The scenery is beautiful and it is well worth the drive.

This has to be the mother of all aspen groves - I have never seen such a healthy stand with such substantial aspens! They were all so healthy and looked even more amazing with the ferns surrounding them...

Hiked the 2-3 mile Old Wagon Trail hike on the Keebler Pass. Wonderful! Park up past the trailhead and walk downhill. It's a great idea to shuttle if you can; if not, hike back uphill for a terrific workout.

Beautify pass straight up to Crested Butte. Biggest. Problem is drivers don't pull over for ones going faster, they take it as an insult. Just look for a safe area and let the fast vehicles pass ,NO BIG DEAL!!! I've been 4 wheeling for years and since cats can use Kebler they don't understand being polite. Someone gave me the... More

My daughter and I left town at 7:30 am in search of beautiful photos and drove up the pass and back, stopping for a quick hike at Lost Lake Campground. So beautiful and relaxing.
