This is the final leg of Grand County’s border to the north and west.

At the intersection of HWY 40 (at Muddy Pass and on the way to Steamboat Springs) and Hwy 14 (which goes towards Walden), The Rabbit Ears Range meanders east and northeast towards the Summer Range, encompassing around Rocky Mountain National park. The Rabbit Ears Range is the border for Grand COunty (south and Arapaphoe National Forest) and Jackson County (north and Routt National Forest), where it also crosses Hwy 125 at Willow Creek Pass (elevation 9621 ft). Roadwise, a great full circle drive for fall colors and on a motorcyle would be starting from Granby towards Kremmling on 40, towards Steamboat and the Rabbit Ears monument (which is fun to see from differenat angles of approach), to the intersection of Hwy 14, turning right towards Walden, then turning right at intersection of Hwy 125 towards Granby. This will lead through Rand and then to Willow Creek Pass, where after a few miles, you parallel  Willow Creek till it flows away from Hwy125 as it heads past C Lazy U guest ranch. Great ride.

Enjoy this young guy towards Willow Creek Pass.
