Slumgullion

Anyone gone from Creed to Lake City? Have read reports of caution taking a trailer down Slumgullion Pass. Years ago, I pulled one up, but have no idea what the trip would be like going down. Any comments?? Thanks in advance.

I would say it's just something just short of a white knuckle experience. I don't mean to scare you from driving it. We took it with our 30' AS towed behind our '06 Dodge 3500 pickup. After the descent I found it to be the only time I smelled brakes from my truck. And I took it gently and slowly. I let the brakes cool off and things were fine for the rest of the trip. So long as the tail doesn't wag the dog it's a good trip. I would not hesitate to do it again.

Take it slow and easy and enjoy the ride.

Done it several times with our duramax pulling 30'fc. No problem at all. Not as hairy as silverton-Ouray.

Thank you all. That part of the world can be tricky, but sure is beautiful.
