Colorado 550

Colorado 550 from Montrose to Durango, Colorado is not only scenic, but one of the most dangerous stretches of highway in the country. With no guard rail to protect you, the drop offs can reach 400 feet. If this isn’t enough to contend with, the area is also frequented by rock slides that can cause major accidents and road closures at any time. This drive is not for the faint of heart.

Length: 107 Miles
Drive Time: 2 Hours, 5 Minutes (If nothing goes wrong.)
Best Time to Visit: Spring – Fall
