This trail crosses the continental divide and skirts the Weminuche Wilderness. It is one of the longest uninterrupted climbs in the state. It passes through an area rich in mining history. At one point, you cross under an aerial tramway with a bucket suspended over the road. Many of these buckets still contain ore. One might think the mines were shut down only yesterday. This trail has an interesting variety of terrain including steep, narrow rocky sections, stream crossings, and muddy areas. The Pole Creek stream crossing can be too deep to cross during spring run-off. Mildly rocky and steep in a few places but suitable for any high clearance, 4WD SUV. Pole Creek, on the far east side of the pass, can get quite deep in the spring. The side trip up to Buffalo Boy Tram House is very steep and narrow in places but stock vehicles with low-range gearing can do it. The road to Beartown and Kite Lake is narrow and potentially muddy in spots. The last quarter mile before Kite Lake has some moderate rocky ledges. You may wish to walk this section if your vehicle does not have skid plates.
