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.

Thank you for the information! My trip is tentatively scheduled for August I had not thought about snow. I will be traveling with someone that does not like heights. So Ted your comment about North Pass on 114 being less stressful is appealing. I will be pulling a lite 30' TT with a Toyota pick up with 5.7 ltr V8 which is supposed to have extra heavy duty brakes and springs

Fitzjohnfan, I have driven over Slumgullin and Spring Creek pass in my tow vehicle about 4 years ago and that was good enough for me smile.gif it is a beautiful drive, but no way could I pull a TT over that. Funny how as a kid I loved Red Mountain Pass, but now even Wolf Creek Pass makes me nervous.

I did watch a couple of YouTube videos on Monarch and North Pass. If I decide to go 114 over North Pass is there anything I need to be aware of? Wouldn't that route be less likely to have snow since it is lower elevation?

Again, thank you for your comments and suggestions.
