Cottonwood Pass Summer Option:
In the summer months, Cottonwood Pass is almost always passable. Whether coming from Denver or Colorado Springs, when you reach Johnson Village, turn right/north towards Buena Vista on Highway 24. Take a left at the main traffic light toward Cottonwood Pass. The road will be paved all the way to the top and then unpaved on the other side. This road is well maintained but narrow with many hairpin turns. There will be sections of washboard conditions and often potholes to avoid. Follow all the way until it ends at Taylor Reservoir. Turn left toward Gunnison and follow the road around the reservoir and eventually into Taylor Canyon. This is County Rd. 742 and winds for about 23 miles to Three Rivers Resort on your left right before you reach Highway 135.
