Williams Pass follows an old 1880s toll road up and over the Continental Divide. It was once the route for travelers and goods from St. Elmo to Pitkin, and it's now used exclusively for outdoor recreation. Topping out at just below 12,000' in elevation, Williams Pass treats visitors to spectacular east and west views as you travel through a pristine alpine meadow. The pass connects both Chaffee and Gunnison Counties and the San Isabel and Gunnison National Forests.
