Overview

Corona Pass once held the title of the country's highest elevation rail stop. The trail is located just outside Winter Park, along the Continental Divide at 11,660 feet above sea level. Although this pass has been used for thousands of years by humans and animals, not until the mining and railroad booms of the 1900s did machinery begin summiting the treacherous pass. Today, the pass is no longer linked on both ends, thus creating two dead-end routes. Making your approach from the west to the top of Rollins Pass, you will be greeted with breathtaking panoramic views, endless wildflowers, and incredible campsites that are sure to make your Instagram followers jealous.
