Loveland Pass Trailhead

  

Located on the Continental Divide in the Front Range west of Denver. Loveland is the highest mountain pass in the world that regularly stays open during a snowy winter season. Loveland Ski Area is located at the eastern end of the pass, and Arapahoe Basin is on the west side. The pass itself is a popular destination for backcountry skiers. Occasionally during the winter, the pass road may be closed by a blizzard and all traffic must use the tunnel, even the normally forbidden HAZMAT-carrying vehicles. This area provides summer and winter recreation opportunities.
