Hermit Pass is one of the few trails allowing you to drive a vehicle above 13,000' in elevation. Originally built as a mining exploration route and a connection between the Westcliffe Valley and the San Louis Valley, the road now primarily serves the recreation community. The route takes you through lower-elevation forests and aspen groves, past high-alpine lakes, and culminates with panoramic views both east and west framing the vast valleys below. The road does not offer much in the form of a technical challenge, but the scenery is well worth the trip! Hermit Pass should be part of your trail plans if you are in the Westcliffe area.
