Thinking of heading to Gunnison, CO late August. Wondering if anyone out there has an opinion on the best route from Texas. I could go Interstate 25 to Hwy 50 or go further into New Mexico and go up 285 to Hwy 114. Colorado Hwy 50 and 114 both have a pass. Which road is better 50 or 114? I will be pulling a 30 ft TT.

I agree with the other posts, us50 is more scenic than the 285 route. Either way will take you over Monarch pass which is steep, but if you gear-down on the down grade and try not to use your brakes, you should be fine.

If you want to, also check out us160 through Walsenberg, you will also enjoy this trip as it takes you past theGreat Sand Dunes National Monument. From there, you can still take 285 or continue on 149 through Creed. Very scenic, but you do have to go over two passes here. Slumgullion and spring creek.
