Million Dollar Highway, Colorado
Address: 2060 East Main Street, Grand Junction, Colorado 81501
A feat of modern engineering, this highly exposed roadway is one of Colorado’s most breathtaking rides! Slicing through craggy rock, it follows old stagecoach routes and pack trails while dancing around minds, creeks and ore-scared peaks. The skyway parallels the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Take care on the narrow sections of road with no guardrail. The Million-Dollar Highway is open year-round, though it closes frequently during heavy winter storms. View map here.
