Red Mountain Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Few stretches of tarmac elicit more intrigue than the notorious mountain road that connects Ouray and Silverton. Known alternatively as the “Million Dollar Highway” and one of the world’s most dangerous roads (as proclaimed by USA Today in 2013), this 23-mile stretch of US Highway 550 that crosses Red Mountain Pass is brutal, breathtaking, and a little bit scary. And that applies whether you’re on a bike or in a car."
