Hello and happy New Year! We are excited to welcome you as a guest of Twins Peaks Lodge & Hot Springs in 2019 and show you the incredible experience Ouray has in store for you. In the meantime, there is some intriguing news regarding one of Colorado’s most infamous mountain passes.
Have you been off-roading in Ouray or in the area? If so, you are probably somewhat familiar or may be aware of Red Mountain Pass. It has developed fame for being one of the most challenging mountain passes intended entirely for those with an abundance of years of experience. With no guardrails and precipitous drop-offs, Red Mountain Pass poses a significant danger. For those able to make their way through it, however, they may likely concur that the views make the experience worth the danger. As a matter of fact, more than 2,000 vehicles navigate the dangerous mountain pass on a daily basis.
Million Dollar Highway comprises a portion of Red Mountain Pass and it was recently bestowed the accolade of the “Most Visited Places Award” by the travel company ArrivaLIST! Million Dollar Highway managed to outdo other notable places in Colorado such as the Denver Zoo.
If you have the courage and the ability, try exploring the challenge of Red Mountain Pass!
