Sunnyside Saddle

Sunnyside Saddle

Sunnyside Saddle is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 4.030m (13,221ft) above the sea level, located in San Juan County, in the U.S. state of Colorado. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit, located within the San Juan Mountains range in the Rocky Mountains of North America, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is impassable from September to June. Great trail for experienced wheelers. 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. It’s an old mine road.
