Colorado Springs to Glenwood Springs

Would rather avoid Denver this time. Been there, done that.

Route suggestions??

In a Class C motorhome. No toad.

We drove the exact route recommended by twogypsies last fall in a class C. It's all 2 lanes until I70, but an easy drive. Much more scenic as well.

As usual this would be the Simplest route - but with your Size Independence Pass Could Come into Play - - - - seriously if I were driving a small C and had no issue with a few narrow sections of Road - RT 82 from Twin Lakes to/thru Aspen would sure be Fun.

The road is length restricted because of the narrow sections but if you can drive comfortably in the Mountains - you should be fine- and with the Chance to Catch Maroon Bells - OMG - Beautiful.

Also look at Monarch Pass and Gunnison to to RT 133 past Marble and into the Springs that way, so many options and Never Enough TIME!

JMHO,

Hard to take a bad route in Colorado if you stay off the I's.

RT 82 narrow section.

Thanks Busskipper! I had hoped you would chime in here. Great suggestions, as usual. I have no problem with mountain driving and narrow roads.

I-70 through the GlenwoodSprings area is an engineering marvel

Yes it is - IMHO one of the most Beautiful drives on an I anywhere. Just go east on I-70 from the Springs and the Over Under is just Beautiful.

The all too often spring Rocks have been an issue lately - -

Enjoy the Drive however you go,
