the world's most spectacular roads

Mount Bross

Mount Bross is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.321m (14,178ft) above the sea level, located in Park County, Colorado, in USA. It is a rare trail that allows you to drive to the top of a "14er". Full size vehicles should not attempt to drive all the way, as there are a few very narrow spots that are very high. It's one of the highest roads of the USA.

The road to the summit, located in the Pike National Forest, is gravel. A 4WD vehicle and an experienced driver are recommended. This trail provides a fairly easy route to the top of the mountain. The top of the mountain is huge and flat, with plenty of parking. The views are amazing. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.
Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Mount Bross is named for William Bross, who owned mining property near Alma. The trail is relatively easy for most of the way. As you near the top the trail becomes narrow and is made up of mostly loose rock. Mount Bross is covered with old mining roads and claims, part of Colorado's historic mining legacy, so there are property issues to consider when hiking up the mountain.

Stay away if you're scared of heights. It is recommended that beginner riders avoid this road. The summit is located within the Mosquito Range of the Rocky Mountains. This is one of the most scenic trails you'll find in Colorado. The summit of Bross is private property and the land owners have not consented to allow climbers to reach the actual high point. 
The road to the summit is an old mining road. Moose Mine was the highest major producer of precious metals (gold and silver) in North America. This is a great trail that offers a little bit of everything -- rocky challenges, fantastic scenery, Colorado history, and access to some great hiking and fishing. Due to the high elevations and exposure, the road is subject to strong winds and rapid weather changes. Be prepared for the cold and wind! High winds blow here all year long.
