Breckingridge to Colorado Springs

Looks like 3 ways to get from Breckinrige to Colorado Springs.

We are in our Tiffin 31SA Gasser with a Jeep toad. This will be late in our trip this summer so we'll have already been dealing with other mountainous roads in the northern Rockies.........

Hwy 9 looks a bit tight, and I have no idea what the grades are like.

Hwy 9 south out of Breckinridge to 24 east to Colorado Springs

Hwy 9 south to 285 south to 24 to Colorado Springs

Or, is it simply prudent to just suck it up take 70, lug it up to the Eisenhower tunnel and go around Denver, and then down to CS?

Thanks

Going on 9 you will have to go over Hoosier pass. Driven it in a car without problems. think you will be fine, but there are some windy turns. You might check with some locals in Breakinridge as to how the grades are. After you get over Hoosier pass you will be fine.

The only issue you will have as previously mentioned is Hoosier pass. It is a good road but has a decent grade (8% in places) and a couple of hairpins. Will be a bit of a slog to get up on top but many rv's use it. The south side is definitely easier. once over 9 will take you into Fairplay go right/south on 285 to just outside of town and you will take a left on 9 then take that to 24. (that section is flat and straight and will save you some miles (10-15 miles) instead of 285 to 24. 24 has a few twisty curveys once over Wilkerson pass and not bad nor is Wilkerson Pass. Taking 70 to 25 to the Springs will be a good 3.5 hours assuming traffic is good if bad could be another hour or two.

I spent a few days skiing at breck this past winter, had to cross Hoosier pass every day traveling from the house we were at to the ski resorts

For me I wouldn't have any issues driving a RV through the pass, it's not that technical or tight. Several semis and RV's were traveling through the pass and that was in January

This is the way to do it. Once you get into Fairplay you'll be in South Park so wave at all the cartoon kids running around. WIlkerson Pass is not really narrow or very twisty it's just steep pull up from that side.
