Where the Real Fun Begins

Black Bear Pass is famous for the dangerous switchbacks above Bridal Veil Falls. Fun or scary looking?


From this point I could see the next two levels of the road.

I never knew there were even roads like this until I started reading your blogs Lisa. It's pretty scary to me, but I might be willing to try it!

You do this in a Jeep? And live to tell about it?

That first shot is leaving me a little breathless! Yikes!!

You're a braver soul than I!

Hmmmm. It's FUN if you like being scared! At least you have a regular jeep; my brother takes his suburban. Okay, so it has 4WD, but it's still sooooo not normal. I honestly don't think he could make these switchbacks; then again, he'd find a way.

Another white-knuckler! Of course, I'm a big chicken -- step ladders make me nervous.

Did you hike this or do it in a jeep? I know people do both. We were in Ouray and Telluride a couple weeks ago and did the Alpine Loop and Imogene Pass. Such beauty!! We try to visit at least once every summer. But I'll have to enjoy Black Bear Pass vicariously through your photos and YouTube. We won't be driving that one!

We drove it, actually twice last week! We have a 2008 Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited.

Oh no! No way. I'll get out and walk, thank you. Very slowly and carefully. Meet you in town!

That first one looks a little tricky the path.
