Colorado Route 149 - South Fork to Gunnison + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Route starts in either South Fork and heads north on CO Route 149 or starts in Gunnison and heads south on CO Route 149 to South Fork.
Route 149 is one the most scenic roads I have ever been on. Scenery wise you have it all - stunning views of the mountains , a ride a long the banks of a river, and sections that ride next to beautiful rock walls. It is a must ride If your are in Colorado. And, you get different views depending if you are traveling South to North or North to south. I personally think the South to North Route is the better view!!
Lots of sweeping curves on this one and of course being a mountain drive you're going to be going up and down hills. This road has it all.
There really aren't "things to do along the way" but you do have gas in the towns of South Fork, Crede, Lake City, and Gunnison. Crede and Lake City old Mining towns ... not much else.
