the world's most spectacular roads

Hurricane pass

Hurricane Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 13,238ft (4.034m) above the sea level, located in San Juan County, Colorado, in USA. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

Hurricane Pass sits at the head of the South Fork of Cascade Canyon. To reach the trail, starting from Silverton, exit Highway 550 onto Greene St./Hwy 110, continue on Hwy 110 through Silverton (1.2 Miles), turn left to stay on Hwy 110 (6.4 Miles) and slight left onto County Rd 10/Hurricane Pass. Be sure to pay close attention to your driving. The trail is steep and falling off some edges would be fatal. The trail is a 5,34 miles one-lane dirt and gravel road.
From this magnificent perch there are awesome 360-degree vistas. If you dare take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy  route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road.
