The drive from Crested Butte to Paonia passes West Beckwith Mountain, the best spot in the state to view foliage. With 50 square miles of golden aspens.

The wildflowers on the road up to the pass are beautiful this time of year (July). The lake near the top of the pass is great for hiking, picnicking and even swimming.

Keller Pass is always worth the drive. Winter on Snowmobiles or Summer Drive, you will always have breathtaking views. Great photo spots!

Lake Irwin is a hidden gem off Kebler Pass on the Crested Butte side. Lots of paddle boarders, swimmers and kayakers enjoying the beautiful July weather. We continued on the road all the way to the top and are so glad we did. Stunning vistas.

About 2 hours to/from highway 133 to/from Crested Butte, with the best views on the west side of Kebler Pass (about the west 3/4 of the route). We drove it in early July and the views were exceptional, but we can't imagine how great it...More

On a trip with the youth of our church, we were coming through this pass to visit Crested Butte. It is gorgeous w streams, lakes, overviews, mountains with trees, rocks, snow, and more. If you can get here, do! And enjoy the scenery and beauty.
