The turnoff from Colorado 145 at the site of the Ophir Loop starts this track; but it is not well marked, so we recommend that you measure the distance from Telluride on your odometer. Those with GPS receivers will be glad to have the benefit of modern technology. Across the highway from the start of this trail is a short road to the township of Ames, the site of the first commercial, alternating- current electricity generating plant in the United States. Special Attractions: Driving through the twenty-foot-high channel in the snow early in the season; The long, narrow shelf road set into the talus slope on the west side of the pass; Varied scenery, with exceptional views from near the summit toward the west. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
