Loveland Pass

 

 

 

科羅拉多U.S.6號公路由丹佛西行有很大一部分是和70號州際公路(I-70)共用的,在現今70號州際公路216哩到205(Dillon Silverthorne)這一段還沒興建艾森豪(Eisenhower Tunnel)隧道以前,是從Exit216開始循蜿蜒的山路上山,越過落磯山脈分水嶺(Continental Divide ),也就是Loveland Pass,然後再陡下進入Arapahoe Basin,經過Keystone接回70號公路(全長20)。這一段路的東端是Loveland Ski Area,西邊則是Arapahoe Basin,都是離丹佛不遠的滑雪勝地,由於道路彎曲陡峭,在在冬季下雪的季節是特別危險的。自從1970年代Eisenhower Tunnel 建好後,除了Trucks以外的車輛都可直接由70號公路穿越隧道,避開此路段。Loveland Pass為紀念William A.H. Loveland(19世紀末Colorado Central Railroad的總裁)而命名。

Loveland Pass海拔11990/3655公尺,目前除了大型貨卡車通行外,就數觀光客和登山客最多,因為車行在這條路線上不僅可近距離親近滑雪場,更可在最高點的分水嶺上飽覽群山之美。如果時間充裕,在公路最高點停車後更可順著維護完善的Hiking trail往上爬到一萬三千多呎的Mount Sniktau,是一條適中的登山路線。
