The road was scary in a few places.. dirt road and people driving too fast. No real scenic view points. Just ok. I wouldn’t drive this unless I was going somewhere.

Breathtaking views (much like everything in the area)! There was enough snow still in June 17, and the CG was still closed, but we hope to be back this summer and spend more time to explore the trails. Definitely worth the drive!

Went there snowmobiling, was cloudy day so couldn't see all the scenery but was very nice. Can be nerve-racking for a first timer

If you want aspen trees, hikes to lakes, SUP boarding places, moose encounters or just a nice drive, this is the pass to go on. Love it.

No there is already snow in the high country and the elevation is high. The road will probably be closed.
