San Juan Skyway Professional Review and Guide

"A 236-mile loop drive through the scenic San Juan Mountains and across high plateaus. The San Juan Skyway crosses four high mountain passes, weaves alongside sparkling streams, drops down into the high desert country of prehistoric and modern Native Americans, and visits a national park. The two-lane road is paved and has frequent turnouts for scenic and recreational enjoyment. Traffic is moderate, and speeds vary considerably from highway cruising to slow, careful navigation of switchbacks and steep grades.

Special attractions: Million Dollar Highway, Old West and mining towns, spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, historic narrow-gauge passenger railroad, alpine and cross-country skiing, five wilderness areas, Mesa Verde National Park, Anasazi Heritage Center, bicycling, fishing, boating, natural hot springs, hiking, camping. 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."
