Great views here of the mountains and alpine meadows. Lots of parking, restrooms, and informative plaques. Great place to take a quick break on a drive along the Million Dollar Highway.

The views here are not to be believed. I've been here twice in the last week and just a slight change in weather can make the place appear so different. I highly recommend a stop.

We drove up this pass to explore our favorite mountain range, the San Juans! High altitude and scenic mountain views of this young jagged range are awesome. Highly recommended even if you have to take the most dangerous road in Colorado- Red Mountain Pass!

Just down from Molas Pass you'll find Molas Lake. The view of the lake and mountains is beautiful! There is a campground, but also a delightful picnic area with tables, restroom, and access to the lake. Walking just a little south of the picnic area,...More
