Gunnison County Road 12 thru Kebler Pass is an excellent roadway suitable for even large Motor Homes, with a recommended speed limit of between 25 and 40 mph. Sections of the road are paved, and the pass is considered on of the best locales in Colorado to see colorful Autumn foliage because of the millions of huge Aspen trees. The elevation of the road is about 10,000', and camping in this national forest is permitted.

This is of course the best place to see fall colors in Colorado but it's also totally fantastic in the Summer! Check the Three Lakes Trail and Scarp Ridge trails for hikes to do along the road

October 5th and 6th, 2019... PERFECT FALL COLORS TRIP!! Can’t imagine the timing being better. From Crested Butte to Lost Lake Campgrounds is incredible! Catch Ohio Creek Road back to Gunnison.

Drove Kebler pass from Paonia State Park to Crested Butte on Sunday, 9/22. The first 10-15 miles did not have much have color change as of yet. I think full color change is still 2 weeks away in this part. Weekend of October 5th should be better. The last 15 miles definitely had more color change, and once you get to Crested Butte/Gothic you definitely see the leaves changing.

Our yearly favorite trail to run especially in fall. The aspen grove along this trail is one of the best in the state! Any vehicle can make this trip and it is truly worth it :) please don’t miss out on this one!

Needed to get an 18 mile run in so ran through Crested Butte and up to Keebler Pass and along the road for several miles. Road switched from paved to gravel several times but the road was overall in great condition. Later in the day we drove along the entire length of the road and have zero complaints. So many photo opportunities that don’t do the view justice.

The trail is highly trafficked with automobiles. Some of the curves are dangerous during May-Sep/Oct. Vehicles fly around on this road. Road is rough for driving and speed should be kept below 30mph. Fellow hikers, be mindful of traffic at/near turns. There are an abundant amount of trails off Keebler pass as well. With that being said, Keebler pass has breath taking views of mountains, wildlife, aspens/trees, flowers, and overall scenery. Absolutely love this pass.

My mustang made it alright. Don’t need a 4WD but it would be helpful and can go much faster. I let other vehicles go by so they wouldn’t get stuck behind me. The drive was beautiful, flowers were blooming everywhere. Would love to drive this pass again in the fall (and in the right kind of vehicle lol.) 7/21/19

2nd time on Kebler Pass road. Never a disappointment. The flowers are in bloom and the views are great. Never seen aspen trees this tall.

A beautiful place to see millions of huge Aspen from you motorcycle, auto, or Motor Home. Lots of places to pull over to take photos, too., and a large number of trails to hike.

Awesome views and vistas. Found my dispersed camping site for next weekend

this is not a hike! It's a dirt/ Gravel Road that is awesome for Aspen viewing in the fall when the leaves are turning color. Can be driven buy any car or written on a bicycle but certainly wouldn't want to hike it.
