Kuss Peak

Set high in the Mosquito Range of the Rocky Mountains, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle with good ground clearance required. The peak was officially renamed in early 2013 as Kuss Peak. Formerly it was known as Repeater Peak. The summit offers superb views. It’s definitely worth it. You’ll enjoy delightful views ranging from nearby neighbors in the Mosquito Gulch basin out to numerous Continental Divide summits and beyond. It’s an old mine trail. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado. Located 2 miles north of Mosquito Pass, the best time to attempt the pass is between late July and early September. Even with a 4WD vehicle, the pass is typically passable only during the summer months.
