Beautiful when people take care and clean up after themselves. Hoping the government doesn't ruin anything that is scared here. Lots of trails, lakes, rivers BEAUTY..

Saw some huge bucks, a moose and a lot of beautiful scenery. Road is a challenge if you have never driven in mountains. Saw at least none vehicle burn out their brakes so be careful.

Wow! This was an amazingly beautiful, curvy, steep, exciting, yet a little anxiety-filled drive! We were fortunate enough to spot some moose, which made for some happy kids! We stopped several times on the way up and down as the views were unbelievable.

Gorgeous, if you visit take both the paved highway and the Red Grade Road (ask a local) you will not regret it. Perfect place to see moose, deer, lots of fishing and camping opportunities. Lots of trails all skill levels. Get your adventure on.
