colorado: drive through loveland pass

Cup Of Jo


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved car rides. As a child my mom took my sister and I EVERY WHERE. We were always in a car off to some destination and I loved it. I also had a habit of snoozing on car rides but you don’t want to be sleeping through this drive I’m about to share with you!

This gorgeous bypass is totally worth a drive-through! In your GPS type in “Loveland Pass” and get ready for a jaw dropping scenic drive through the mountains.


I will warn you- be careful!! At all times but especially in inclement weather. Snow chains may be required and you can be fined for not having them. I’ve learned to check on local Colorado roadway websites for the current road conditions and for accident reports. And y’all don’t take that information lightly, because it can get BAD out and it’s a tough drive if you’re not an experienced driver or have the proper vehicle/tires.

This bypass is truly one of a kind. My personal favorite time of year would have to be in the winter. The mountains are covered with a luscious layer of snow and it’s a stunning sight for sore eyes. Just fascinating, really. And the forest green evergreen and pine trees covered in snow will have you in awe. Don’t fret, Colorado gives us a generous amount of sunny days so on a nice sunny winter day, you can access the road quite easily. But as I mentioned just check the road conditions in advance.

Let’s take a look!

The drive will bring you to Keystone mountain and from there you’re a short drive from Silverthorne/Dillion.


My recommendation [if you’re headed to Breckenridge from i70W] Drive through Loveland to Keystone, then head to Big Baldy, up to Sapphire Point, then down to downtown Breckenridge. Great for a day trip adventure! 

xo, JJ
