Rollins Pass Road
For years Rollins Pass has been a staple in the lexicon of high mountain riding near Boulder and Denver. Beginning on the Continental Divide’s eastern slope, the ride to the top of Rollins Pass provides a long, but relatively moderate hill climb to the summit and the Continental Divide at 11,671 feet. Along the way, riders are treated to dynamic views of the Indian Peaks and the Boulder Park Valley before arriving at the top. Following the bed of an old wagon train route, the trail passes through mixed conifer forests and around high-altitude lakes before arriving at the caved-in Needle Eye Tunnel and Rollins Pass. Since much of this route travels above timberline, riders should start early in the day to lessen the chances of being caught above timberline during a midafternoon thunderstorm, a common occurrence for this area.
