Description:

Kenosha is just the beginning of a wonderful part of Colorado. With a little deviation from the highway you will experience the beauty of Jefferson Lake, Boreus Pass, South Park and Terryale reservoir.Kenosha Pass is located southwest of Denver and just northeast of the town of Fairplay, Colorado at elevation 10,000 ft . Hiking Kenosha Pass, to the east of Hwy 285 on the Colorado Trail, enabled us to see the most beautiful fall colors that Colorado has to offer with the aspen. It's approximately a 3.5 mile hike one way. For the most part, it is not overly difficult. You will eventually reach a plateau area that looks over a beautiful basin. Note: if during the fall color season, during the weekday because the weekends are busy on the roads and trails in the park. Hikers and bikers will be pleased! Kenosha pass is part of the Colorado Trail. Coming from Denver you can reach Kenosha Pass by driving Southwest on Highway 285 towards the high country. Best way is to get on C-470 and take the 285 South exit. You will know you have reached the pass because the sign is posted 10,000 elevation. Not only that, but there are signs and pull-over areas indicating you have arrived. Turn off to the left and it will take you to the area for bathrooms. You may want to take some tissue with you. The facilities were not the best or cleanest with all of the foot traffic at the time we were there.
