McClellan Mountain

McClellan Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.996m (13,110ft) above the sea level, located in Clear Creek County, Colorado, in USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit is gravel and rocky. It’s called McClellan Mountain Road. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. 4x4 vehicles required. The trail follows the remains of a narrow railroad, called the Argentine Central Railroad which was started in 1905 and completed nearly a year later. The trail is a testament engineering with six switchbacks so the train could zig-zag up the mountain.
