Trail Information

Highlights

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.

Great trail with a very fun obstacle at WP 2. The climb give the vechile a nice test to see if everything is working. Ran in a 06 xterra on 32".
