Written Directions

A beautiful ride that takes you up and over Wolf Creek Pass. Definitely worth the ride but as always, monitor weather as the peak is over 10,000'. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_Creek_Pass)

Scenery

Per Wikipedia: Wolf Creek Pass is a high mountain pass on the Continental Divide, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It is the route through which U.S. Highway 160 passes from the San Luis Valley into southwest Colorado on its way to New Mexico and Arizona. The pass is notable as inspiration of a C. W. McCall song. The pass is significantly steep on either side (6.8% maximum grade) and can be dangerous in winter. There are two runaway truck ramps on the westbound side for truckers that lose control of their brakes."

Drive Enjoyment

Sweeping turns with a few tight slow ones.

Tourism Opportunities

Lots of camping and hotel options along the way. Eating opportunities are on either end of the pass.
