The minute you step out of your car at Loveland Pass, you’ll already have postcard-perfect views. The drive to the top of this thrilling paved pass is an adventure in itself. As for the hiking, heading up to the east grants access to several 13,000-foot peaks. Westward presents an often-overlooked traverse along the Continental Divide above the Loveland Ski Area. A classic traverse from Loveland Pass to Loveland Tunnel West can add in “Golden Bear Peak” without too much trouble—both the navigation and the parking set up nicely for this point-to-point.
