CO 91 Copper Mountain to Leadville

Is this route appropriate for a 45 foot DP with toad? Yes, I have good brakes.

Absolutely. Good road with a truck lane where needed.

It's as appropriate as any other high pass road in Colorado. Hiway 91 is a good 2 lane road with shoulders. it goes from about 10,000 ft at I-70 up to Fremont Pass at 11,300 and then back down to around 10,000 ft at Leadville. That's spread out over almost 24 miles, so the grade is not bad except the final switch back just before the summit. When we helped build the Climax Moly mine up there, we drove up & down 91 daily with all types of trucks and a bus full of workers.
The alternate is hwy 24 a bit further to the west. Its a very similar type road that goes from 8000 ft up to 10,000 ft but spread over more miles, so slightly less steep.
If you're coming from the east use 91. If you're coming from the west use 24. Both are beautiful drives through the high country during summer or fall. Winter is a different story on any of our roads over 10,000 ft.
