Brown’s Pass is situated in the Pike National Forest a few miles south of Fairplay, Colorado. This area of South Park is remote and far less traveled than other passes, making it a desirable destination for weekend overland exploration. Brown’s Pass features moderate climbs and descents, with several connected roads providing spectacular views above the timberline. Brown's Pass closes seasonally each year from January 1 to June 15th.
From FS Road 175, turn east onto FS Road 176 and proceed up the mountain.
