Missouri Hill

Missouri Hill is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.684m (12,086ft) above the sea level, located in Chaffee County, Colorado, in USA. This is truly a breathtaking trail. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit is called Taylor Mountain trail (Chaffee County Road 228). It’s a gravel and rocky old mine trail. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. 4x4 vehicles required. The climb includes several switchbacks and it’s pretty steep. Stay alert for potential turnouts as you may meet traffic in inconvenient locations. The trail follows numerous remnants of Colorado's mining heritage.
