CO HWY 114 Yes or NO

Any thoughts on CO HWY 114 from Saguache to Montrose?
Alternative is HWY 50 Poncha Springs to Montrose.

40 Ft 2014 Phaeton towing Jeep Cherokee.

Need to get back to Twin falls from Northern NM and looking to avoid I-80 in WY due to high winds on travel date.

Thanks for any input!

50 is excellent. It has Monarch Pall at 11,312' elevation. Westbount to Montrose 6% for 9 miles downhill with 30, 35 mph curves; good two lane

114 is a narrower, little rougher two lane. Westbound at North Pass (North Cochetopa Pass) elevation 10,149 is 7% for 2 miles then eases to 5-6% for 2.5 miles.

Hope you're not in a hurry for Twin Falls.... lots of pretty country in this section of Colorado.

It is as twogypsies said. It is very manageable for your coach with toad. Just depends on your level of comfort negotiating narrow winding roads. It is VERY scenic.

From Saguache I would take CO 114 every time over US 50.

Here is Google Maps street view of CO 114 in Saguache looking West. Just move the arrow and you can do a virtue drive of the route.

If trying to avoid high wind, the early morning or evening times to drive may have less winds. I don't like driving at night, but if it is the only way to avoid high wind driving, I will.

CO 114 is a quiet two lane road. A little steep at the top and a bit of a downgrade. There is about 8 miles canyon gong down and is the place to take it slow and easy. 114 would be my preference over Monarch.
