How are the roads from Dodge City to Durango on 160? We are in a 30 foot motorhome, gas, with a toad. Any large mountains to white knuckle? Appreciate all the advice on this website! Thanks in advance

160 from South Fork to Pagosa Springs goes over Wolfe Creek Pass...11,000’. East to west is a little easier as you have a 10 mile 6% downhill, only 8 miles up. A more southerly route would be much easier.

160 is a good road and should present no problems. Yes you go over la Veta pass west of Walsenberg and then wolf creek west of south fork neither one is bad at all. Road is good top to bottom on both of them and plenty wide. As far as mountain passes go la veta is pretty ho hum and wolf creek is up a notch Never understood all the drama associated with wolf creek. Years ago it was narrower but this isn’t 1975 Anymore and even then it wasn’t dangerous just slow regardless of what the song says.

I think we are talking about US 160, not I-60. The part I am familiar with in Colorado runs from Walsenburg (intersects with I-25 there) to Durango in the west. As has been said LaVeta is one of the easiest passes in Colorado and Wolf Creek is up a notch, but so much better now than the first time I drove over it in the 1960s.
