Overview

Snow can block top of road well into July.

Panoramic views from very high pass. A short enjoyable trip even if you can’t make it over Jones Pass. Great hiking offered at Butler Gulch and along Continental Divide. Nothing significant to see at bottom of west side, but still it is a fun drive. Seasonal gates open June 15 through Nov. 15 according to MVUM, but don’t expect to get to the top until well into summer.

Some embedded rock but mostly graded. Road is narrow and steep on west side of pass and may be intimidating to novice drivers.

There’s a good-sized parking area now at Waypoint 02. Seems to be the point at which many 2-wheel-drive vehicles stop. Once again, when I reached the pass, it was still completely blocked by snow.
