Great road because theres very few houses and side roads into it. This whole area has nice roads but this and around Suches are my favorites.
I discovered this road in the early 70s and have ridden it many times since. Theres more people living up there now but its still a fun ride.You can continue on a few miles north east to the Racer B. Russell Scenic Highway.
This is a rural scenic highway that follows a ridge line. Its very curvy, few side roads and had very little traffic and no cops the times Ive done it. It might be different on weekends and during vacation season.
Leave from Grand Junction on Highway 50 before turning right on Colorado Highway 141. This road will take you through the spectacular red rock scenery of the Unaweep Canyon. A truly memorable experience.
