Mount Mamma

The unpaved road to Mount Mamma

Mount Mamma is a high mountain peak located in Chaffee County, Colorado, USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The nearby road, located in the Sawatch Mountains of Central Colorado, which does not reach the summit, is unpaved. It is impassable from September to July. Great trail for experienced wheelers. The road ends at an abandoned mine on the southeastern slopes of the mountain, at an elevation of 3.842 m (12,604ft) above sea level. A 4WD vehicle with high clearance 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. It’s an old mine road. You will have good views of some of the high peaks of the area including Cronin Peak, Mt. Antero and Grizzly Mountain.
