Resolution Mountain

A memorable road trip to Resolution Mountain in CO

Resolution Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.638m (11,935ft) above the sea level, located in Eagle County, in the U.S. state of Colorado. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

Set high in the heart of the White River National Forest, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called Hornsilver. This road is usually impassable from late October through late June or early July (depending on snow). It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. 4x4 vehicle required. The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 29% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting at Road 708, the ascent is 6.27km (3.9 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 825 meters. The average gradient is 13.15%.
