Snowy Range Highway Professional Review and Guide
"A 29-mile route across the scenic Medicine Bow Mountains. The scenic byway crosses the Medicine Bow Mountains, a region of beautiful alpine vegetation, high lakes, dramatic peaks, and far-ranging views. Locally the highest peaks of the Medicine Bows are called the Snowy Range, because the white, Precambrian quartzite on the crest of the peaks looks like snow even in late summer.
The two-lane highway is paved and has numerous turnouts for scenic and recreational opportunities. Traffic is generally light, and the wide shoulders are good for bicycling. Special attractions: High peaks, alpine lakes, Snowy Range Ski Area, wildflowers, colorful autumn foliage, trout fishing, 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."
