“Terrific aspen forests and big views on a dirt road connecting Castle Creek to Taylor Pass.”— Mike Pritchard
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
You can use this road as part of a long ride to Crested Butte via Taylor Pass Divide Road and Trail 400 (Star Pass), or circle back towards Aspen via Richmond Ridge Road.
Rocky portions of the road may cause you to hike some of the steepest portions on the way up. Expert riders will love blasting down the nearly 5 miles when riding back down to the lowest elevation of the road.
This road is open to motorized vehicles.
