Leadville, Colorado

Trail Rating: 7
At 13,188 feet, Mosquito Pass is the highest continuous road in North America. This pass once served as the main link between the mining town of Leadville and Denver. This steep trail is not for the acrophobic, but the breathtaking views from the top of the pass are hard to beat.

The high altitude may make both vehicles and people run a bit rough, so exercise caution. The pass is snow covered for most of the year, and its only passable by vehicle in the late summer and early fall.
