Hoosier Pass is a well-traveled pass that leads to Breckenridge and other ski areas on the western side of the Continental Divide. On the east side, Alma, Fairplay and the South Park region are the most immediate places below.

Highway 9 runs through Hoosier Passis maintained by the C-DOT and remains open all year.I visited Hoosier Pass during a snowstorm in March 2006 and snapped this snowy photo of the Hoosier Pass sign.



The views of the surrounding mountains ranges are definitely worthwhile to see.The above photo is facing the west side of the divide and a great view ofQuandary Peakis just a few miles downhill on Highway 9.



On the east side of Hoosier Pass, the grandest views come in the form of thegrand view of Mt. Bross and Mt. Lincoln, as seen in the photo above.Platte Gulch and Montgomery Reservoir are also accessed from the east side of Hoosier Pass.
