Vail Trip

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok Colorado Front Rangers (Colo Springs more specifically)

has anyone ever driven the back way to Vail? Taking HWY 24 out of the Springs over to Leadville and then up through Red Cliff and Minturn. We are just thinking of trying this way as an alternative of going 70 over Vail Pass.

Are there any passes that might cause concern going this way? We will be in a Jeep with 4wd. Any advice / recommendations would help. thanks in advance.

We got a place outside of Leadville, we take Hwy 24 to Vail & the Beav all the time. It's a winding road, with little traffic. No C-stores between Leadville & Minturn. Just dont get behind a large truck or Horse trailer once you get past the 10th Mt. Division area, limited passing lanes.
Take your time & enjoy the ride!
You will pass Ski Cooper at Tenn. Pass. If you got time Stop & view the momuments along the way that pay tribute to the Men of the 10th Mt.
