Paved road, nice scenery, Closed to motor vehicles in winter, gate is seven miles up from Grant and closes in November til Memorial Day weekend. Forest Service Has closed 90% of the dispersed camping areas along Guanella Pass road. Really nice Snow Shoeing and Cross Country Skiing along the road in Winter. Keep an eye out for Big Horn Sheep, Moose, Bear, Mountain Lion, Elk, Horses, Cattle and Sasquatch on the road along with all the little critters. Enjoy

This trail is actually a well maintained asphalt roadway. I wouldn't consider it a trail rather a park road.

With that said it is a well worth beautiful drive. Just don't expect to be "off-road".

This is a dirt road that is passable by most cars during summer months. It snows over and closes during the winter. Some areas wash out a little in the spring, making sections bumpy. It is a beautiful drive that takes you over the mountain between Grant and Georgetown.
