CO 306/209 Buena Vista to Taylor Park?

Has anyone here driven Colorado state Hwy 306/209 from Buena Vista to the Taylor Park Area? I have heard that it is ok, except if it has rained a lot, will be pulling a 33' FW and an ATV trailer behind that.

It's a beautiful drive with a mixture of pavement and gravel. You'll be going to Cottonwood Pass at 12,000'EL so if it's raining at Buena Vista you'll have snow up there. We loved the drive - in good weather. This time of year I don't think I'd take a RV on it but that's just us. Ask around in Buena to find someone who's driven it recently in a RV.

You could also get to Taylor Park from Gunnison - all paved. Good luck!

It is a beautiful drive, and people pull trailers over Cottonwood all the time. There are some nice switchbacks going down into TP. IMO, pulling the trailer, I would go through Gunnison unless you are very comfortable pulling your rig in some less than ideal conditions. (Twisty dirt road with quite a bit of traffic at times)
