Fall Colors Weston Pass in Colorado

weston pass colorado
If your in South Park Colorado and you want to go to Leadville just several miles away as the crow flies, be prepared for a long drive all the way around the mountain range, or you can take the short cut through the Pike National Forest up and over the pass. The most well known pass is 13,185' Mosquito Pass but that requires 4-wheel drive and we just have a van. So we opted for the lesser known vehicular pass to the South, the old stage coach road called Weston Pass. The east side of Weston Pass is much better maintained than the west side.
