Gold Hill

Gold Hill

Gold Hill is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.752m (12,309ft) above the sea level, located in Gunnison County, Colorado, in United States. It’s one of the highest mountains of Colorado.

The road to the summit is called Richmond Hill Road. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. This extremely fun and scenic trail connects Taylor Park to the south and Ashcroft/Aspen to the north. Never underestimate this track! The drive is definitely worth it. The road is not for the inexperienced. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. Only 4x4 with high clearance vehicles. The road is impassable from October to July. July (may still be snowed in) and October (early snows may close the pass).
