Bennett Peak

The road to Bennett Peak is pure adventure

Bennett Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.029m (13,218ft) above the sea level, located in Rio Grande County, in southwestern Colorado, in USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

Tucked away in the San Juan Mountains range of the Rocky Mountains, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and rough. Running entirely above timberline, this primitive dirt road follows a gentle, grassy tundra summit with an unusually large rock cairn. If you can’t drive it, you’ll have to walk it.

Located within the Rio Grande National Forest, a 4x4 vehicle is required. It is usually very windy. The road is usually open from June 1st through November 15th depending on winter conditions.
