2021 Montrose, Colorado Visitor Guide - 74

Scenic Roads

Take to the Heavens
Montrose was founded as a gateway community to destinations in every direction.
We know a little something about getting to places around these parts. So get your
map and highlighter ready because we are going to lay out our area's best scenic
and historic drives.

Alpine Loop Back
Country Byway
Touch the heavens from 65 miles of
spectacular peaks and narrow glacial
valleys, including 12,000-foot passes
and well-preserved remains of stamp
mills, tramways and ghost towns from
the mining boom of the late 1800s.
Portions of the route may be visited
in normal passenger cars, but beyond
these points, off-road and highclearance 4WD vehicles must be used.
The Alpine Loop also provides access
to exceptional high-country hiking,
fishing, mountain biking, camping, and
other outdoor adventures.
