Atlantic Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.778m (12,395ft) above the sea level, located in Summit 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 the Rocky Mountains, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Impassable from September to July. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. It’s an old mine route. A 4WD vehicle and an experienced driver are recommended. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. This road is passable in season by high-clearance vehicles. Beware, however, that it is narrow and parking is limitted along its length.
