Cottonwood Pass road now open for the season

Cottonwood Pass — which runs from Gypsum to the Roaring Fork Valley — is now open and will remain open through the fall, conditions permitting.

Cottonwood Pass drivers are urged to use caution when driving this road. Traffic and weather can have a significant impact on road conditions. Furthermore, portions of the road are not paved, and there are many sharp turns and steep drop-offs.

Regulations prohibit travel on portions of Cottonwood Pass for oversized vehicles without a permit. Any vehicle that exceeds 8 feet 6 inches in width, 14 feet 6 inches in height and 35 feet in length will require a permit to travel over Cottonwood Pass.
