My wife and I visited friends in Fraser, and we made a driving tour to include the Million Dollar Highway. It is good to be a passenger! The views are spectacular. This is a MUST DO.

I give it 5 stars for the spectacular scenery. I thought it was great. My husband, who was driving, did NOT have a good time. We were traveling from Cortez, CO to Montrose with our 16 foot travel trailer. Almost non stop cussing. There's several pulloffs. Our favorite (the only one we stopped at) was Molas Pass. Large parking area. Information boards & pit toilet restrooms. Fabulous views! He was stressed out with the numerous switchbacks, almost always on the brake. You had to watch for the dumbasses going the other way who thought the yellow line was just a suggestion. The weather that day was perfect - sunny & dry. I wouldn't take this if it was precipitating in any way.

The Million Dollar Highway is the stretch of highway between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado, and it is 100% worth the drive! It is beautiful!! The views are spectacular, there are some fun stops along the way, and when you have to spend some time traveling from one destination to another, it makes it so much more enjoyable. Loved it!

We were following gps to Ophir pass to earn our first jeep trail badge and holy smokes accidentally ended up on this road. Yes it's beautiful. Ouray looked like a cool stop. This road is not for the meek. I'm scared of heights my hubs drove...i was clutching for my life. Exciting and scary and the most beautiful views.

So, it's safe. It just doesn't feel like it in places. Driving out of Ouray, my wife was on the downhill side of the car. She asked me several times if I couldn't hug the center a bit more since it felt like we were too close to the edge. Wouldn't like to go in the middle of a snowstorm. Otherwise, just take it easy. Now for the road. Wow! This has to be one of the most fabulous roads in America! The road is a real challenge in places. But the views - spectacular, ever changing. Near Ouray, the mountains are spectacular. When we were there the aspen were in full color (like the gorgeous Fall gold). We took the route slow so that we could soak in the beauty. We recommend the same for you.
