Overview

Located within the Gunnison Nation Forest and passing through one of the most scenic and accessible valleys in Colorado, Gothic Road is a popular paradise for sightseers, photographers, and recreationalists of all varieties. Traveling this road is an unforgettable experience as you meander through the valley with panoramic views sandwiched between towering peaks such as Mount Baldy, Mount Bellview, Gothic Mountain, Avery Peak, and White Rock Mountain. Often flanked by wildflowers during the summer, this already picturesque trail becomes even more vibrant in the fall when vast groves of aspen trees ignite into a blaze of golden hues, contrasting with the deep greens of surrounding evergreens. Gothic Road offers an intimate glimpse into the untamed beauty of the Rocky Mountains and leaves you awestruck and speechless.
