DescriptionThe Colorado River Headwaters Scenic Byway follows the beginnings of this major western river. Beginning at the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, the byway and river head southwest past Grand Lake and Granby, before continuing east through Kremmling and State Bridge.
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water along the way, including fishing the Gold Meadow Waters of the upper Colorado for trout, hiking in the peaceful Middle Park area, or just enjoying the sights and sounds of the river.
The westernmost 25 miles of the route (between Kremmling and State Bridge) is a gravel road not suitable for buses or large RVs. The remainder of the road is paved and can be driven by any vehicle.
