Description

The San Juan Skyway is a magnificent loop that crosses the San Juan Mountains twice, from Durango to Ridgway and then to Dolores. From the high mountain towns and alpine vistas to the red rock desert below, you'd be hard pressed to find a drive with more diverse terrain. There are plenty of things to stop and do or see along the way, so if your schedule allows, plan on enjoying the route over several days.
