Colorado is magical in general, but some places are even more magical than others. In fact, some places in our great state are downright dreamy, and almost don’t seem real even when you’re right in the middle of the beauty all around you. One of the dreamiest places in The Centennial State is Kebler Pass near Crested Butte. The scenic drive over Kebler Pass in Colorado is something that you’ll never forget.

Kebler Pass Road, aka GCR 12, ends when it intersects State Highway 133 near Paonia State Park and Somerset. Even though the route is much shorter than it would be going back through Gunnison to get to Paonia, you won’t really save much time going this way. The main reason to take Kebler Pass in Colorado is the beauty, so plan at least two and a half hours to get over the pass – it’s worth the trip!

If you’re looking for a pass that’s even more thrilling, but in a totally different way, Red Mountain Pass is perhaps the most dangerous mountain pass in the state!
