A 60-mile-long paved and gravel road that crosses 12,126-foot Cottonwood Pass on the Continental Divide and follows the Taylor River to Almont. The Sawatch Range lines the west side of the Arkansas River Valley, its high peaks soaring to meet the clouds and sky. The road makes a spectacular backcountry tour that is easily accessible from the Front Range cities. It threads up Cottonwood Creek past beaver ponds and the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area, loops above timberline to the pass summit, and drops down through broad Taylor Park and the Taylor River Canyon to Almont and the Gunnison River. Special attractions: Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area, Mount Yale, Cottonwood Pass, Taylor Reservoir, Taylor Canyon, Continental Divide, Colorado Trail, camping, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, fishing, and flyfishing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
