Cottonwood Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The long grind up the west side of Cottonwood Pass isn’t the toughest climb in the state—but it’s damn close. With an approach that’s predominantly uphill for 32 miles, a total elevation gain of nearly 4500 feet, and a summit elevation of 12,126 feet, this ride is a beast."
