Description

Kebler Pass is a designated motorized corridor. It sees very frequent snowmobile use, has guided snowmobile tours, is cared for by Gunnison County SNOTrackers, and is the access point for Eleven Experience operations at Irwin. If you’re looking for a quiet area – this may not be your place, but with all the use there, does come great packed surfaces, including regular grooming. Kebler Pass is 7 miles up the road, a gradual climb, and drainages off to the sides (Irwin Campground (3), Ohio Pass (4), Splains (2), climb a bit more. But that always leads to a fun downhill! You can also continue over Kebler Pass towards Lost Lake (5) if you’re really looking to put in some miles. Sometimes SNOtrackers grooms all the way to Erikson Springs – 20 miles out!  During heavy snow, these roads and tracks can get buried very fast and the riding disappears until the locals get out and play in it! Kebler Trailhead is 2 miles from Town. Try to leave the North side parking for trailers and larger vehicles – and be sure to ride smart and single file as there is a lot of fast moving traffic.
