Mountain Hwy.



Good Morning Fellow Travelers:

One quick question, I'm considering traveling out to CO and visiting the Durango area. It appears that highway 160 running "west" off of I-25 is the most direct route. Does anyone have any "experience" with this particular highway?

Thanks for any input.

Its a beautiful road. I drove it just last month (June). I drove it in a 26 ft motorhome. There's a couple passes to go over (La Veta Pass and Wolf Creek Pass) that have long ascents and descents. Some nice small towns that time has seemed to forgot. Plan on speeds of 45 to 50 mph slowing down to 35-25 in the towns. Its 2 lanes with not much traffic. Its in good condition.

Thanks for the input. I was somewhat nervous as I had heard the grades were as much as 12%, with steep drop offs etc.

Although our coach is 44' I'm not worried about a two lane road and having to keep my speed down, in fact I'd rather go slower and enjoy the sights.

From Durango we're headed down to Santa Fe for a few days and then on to the Balloon Fiesta.

Thanks again for the info and safe traveling.

If you have time, take the Durango-Silverton Railway trip. You both can sit and watch the view. Seats are reserved, and they turn the train around so you can see the other side view.
