A beautiful mountain drive west out of Georgetown, Colorado. Well maintained road that has recently been upgraded with plenty of views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. The nice day trip extends over the Guanella mountain pass toward South Park valley, intersects highway 285 into...More

Drove on this picturesque road on the way to our hike up Mt Bierstadt. Gorgeous! Lots of people camping in the area, the road is great, was paved recently, wide enough and the views are spectacular!

First time over since the rebuild. Great road on the 1200 GS. Some airy sections of Flatlanders. Ride your ride and you'll be OK. And, stay in your lane.

Father's Day, we were in the area, ate at Mountain Prime in Idaho Springs (Go, it is great). My kids had never been up the pass before, they loved it, snow pics in shorts in June, right! Sometimes we see bighorn sheep, not this time....More

It has been years since I crossed Guanella Pass and the improvements are extraordinary. Paved all the way. Mostly wood guard rails make it seem more rustic and very little traffic.

The road up to the pass is paved to the top from the Geogretown side but it will be many months before the remainder is paved. They only opened the road all the way to the top from Georgetowm a few weeks ago..
