Capture the Sunrise from Guanella Pass

Guanella Pass Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Grace Ditzenberger

Watch the sunrise from the summit of Guanella Pass in the shadow of Mount Bierstadt.

From I-70, take the Georgetown exit. Following the signs for Guanella Pass through the town. The pass will zigzag up the side of the mountain. Drive until you reach the trailhead for Mount Bierstadt on the left. Park the car and cross the parking lot - there is no trail here, but climb the short hill to get the optimal view for the early morning alpenglow. 

The sun will rise above Mt. Bierstadt and cast a golden glow on the surrounding peaks. It is definitely worth the early morning wake-up.
