Bennett Peak

Bennett Peak

Bennett Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.026m (13,209ft) above the sea level, located in Rio Grande County, in the U.S. state of Colorado. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit, located in the San Juan Mountains range of the Rocky Mountains, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. The road up to the pass is rough. If you can’t drive it, you’ll have to walk it. Located within the Rio Grande National Forest, avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. Entirely above timberline, this dirt road follows a gentle, grassy tundra summit with an unusually large rock cairn.
