I'm an inexperienced "Off-Roader" who wimps out easily. I wouldn't even call this trail Moderate, more like Easy but fun. Took wife, 4y/o and dogs in the T4R for a scenic drive outside of St. Elmo. Got out to run the dogs and get in the creek. Back in the truck for a bit of "off-roading" toward the end and it was fine. Didn't go all the way back due to time but fun enough for a wimp like me. Quiet and scenic fall colors too!

Good trail with pretty awesome views!

I actually drove Medano Pass in Chevrolet Suburban 12 years ago. the sand dune portion was tricky in that vehicle. Looking forward to driving it in a RZR.

was there yesterday and signs said hiking only.

Great time! My wife and I loved it. Her first drive (Wrangler Unlimited in 4H).

We started in Leadville & drove through to Fairplay. It’s not challenging, but it’s very rough / rocky. The views are beautiful.

Not many good camping spots or views, and the road was very rough. Other passes in the area are much better.

This loop povides spectacular views from atop the Continental Divide and a bit of Colorado railroad history(Alpine Tunnel). it is traversed by motorized vehicles although rarely during the week.

One of my favorites. Good Jeep trail with great views. Number of water crossings before dropping into Sand Dunes. We entered from Westcliffe side and then came back.

Started from the Leadville, Co side of the pass and it was a easy trail and had some good views.

Loved it!

Medano Pass was an awesome way to drop into great sand dunes!
