  1. Los Caminos Antiguos Scenic & Historic Byway– 129 miles

Blending many of the Colorado’s most intriguing sites, Los Caminos Antiguos will take you from Conejos through San Luis and Fort Garland. Along the way, you’ll see the state’s oldest Catholic parish, oldest surviving community, and eventually reach Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, home of North America’s highest sand dunes.

Open only between Memorial Day and Labor Day due to its high altitude, Independence Pass reaches a peak of 12,095 feet. Evergreens and imposing mountains loom over a lush valley below. Along this route you’ll encounter the ski towns of Aspen and Snowmass as well as the world’s largest improved hot spring in Glenwood Springs.

  1. Top of the Rockies Scenic and Historic Byway– 75 miles

Situated at 10,200 feet, the country’s highest incorporated town of Leadville is still dwarfed by Mount Massive and Mount Elbert, the two tallest peaks in Colorado.

  1. Pawnee Pioneer Trails Scenic and Historic Byway– 128 miles

Along this flat and open route you’ll be treated to views of the intricately striated Pawnee Buttes- two of the most famous buttes in Colorado’s prairie. Take a glimpse back into history as you behold the same terrain pioneers saw in the 1800s.
