Stunner Pass

A memorable road trip to Stunner Pass

Stunner Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.222m (10,570ft) above the sea level located in Conejos County, in the U.S. state of Colorado.

Nestled in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado, within the San Juan National Forest, the forest service graded gravel road to the summit is pretty wide and passes several campgrounds. It’s called FR-250. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years.

Located west of Capulin and south of Summitville, the pass road is 7.24km (4.5 miles) starting north of Platoro. The pass is named after the ghost town of Stunner, located near of the pass. This was a mining town that failed due to nonproducing mines and transportation problems.
