You need to go there only if you have an 4x4 truck, not reccomended for cars... think they pass by this way with dilligence for post office... amazing
My first Jeep trail in Colorado! Starting out of Leadville was a rough ride but when I got to the top, decided to just keep goin'! Looped back on the highway through Breckenridge and hit the skatepark there. Great first day!
Super scary! We made it to the top and back without getting killed, but my son lost his ATV as it fell off the side of the mountain. If you enjoy the thrill, go for it. But, be careful!!!
There were some parts where I would have preferred to walk instead of staying in the car. Lots of hairpin turns. Took a long time but the trip was worth it in the end.
Mosquito Pass is a high mountain pass between Fairplay and Leadville that is rich in mining history. The trail itself is moderately difficult for stock 4x4 vehicles and can be dangerous, so should be travelled cautiously and never alone.

Nice trip for a real 4wheel drive. Mining relics were especially interesting for the guys. Father Dyer's gravestone is at the top. Should read a bit of the history to appreciate it and read the signs. Fun to drive early and end in Leadville for breakfast/lunch.
Great trip over the pass. Wonderful views and history. Get the auto tour brochure from the forest service office before going. Requires good 4 wheel drive and skills.
Never attempt this without a very good 4 wheel drive vehicle and asking locally about conditions. I have been there about five times and have not been able to get there about five other times because of bad conditions. But if you can make it you will be very glad you did: the experience, the scenery, the history.
