Highway 114 - Colorado from Saguache to Gunnison
« on: June 26, 2018, 09:33:29 AM »
Anyone familiar with this stretch of highway and pass?   I was looking at this as an alternative to going over Monarch Pass to Gunnison.  Thanks

I checked with FlattestRoute.com:  https://www.flattestroute.com/ and it looks pretty good.  Not sure about road conditions, very tight turns on the steep parts, etc.

You can use the satellite view on Google Maps or Bing Maps to view the road. Just scroll the map to see the conditions. That helps with my road planning.

It is a nice drive.  Not as high or as steep as Monarch Pass.

Ok, if the road is good I will go that way and forego Monarch.

So, how was the alternate route to Gunnison? Better than going over Monarch Pass?
