Vehicle Types


Follow scenic railroad grade to historic well-preserved trestles.

Scenic route climbs through forest then continues above timberline to 11,660 feet. Great views of Winter Park Ski Area and high mountain lakes. Boulder Wagon Road continues to other side of pass with short hikes to Twin Trestles and closed Needle’s Eye Tunnel. No connecting route to Rollins Pass East, Trail #36. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed on all roads. Open seasonally June 15 through November 15.

Overall, the trail is a bit rougher but still rated Easy. Boulder Wagon Road, that I show as F.S. 149, has been renumbered to 501.1. This road is a bit rougher now, and should probably be rated Moderate.


Rate this trail on a scale of 1 to 5.
