Located just south of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, Pearl Pass is a high alpine off-road trail between Aspen and Crested Butte. The trail has a variety of different terrain, from grassy hillsides and water crossings to coarse rock fields and towering mountains. This extremely rugged mountain pass will amaze you while traveling in some of the most remote terrain in the state, taking in incredible views as you cross the Continental Divide at 12,705 feet. Snow can linger very late into the summer, and some years this pass doesn't fully open due to snow blockage.
