The Pfiffner Traverse is bookended in the south by Berthoud Pass (US-40) and in the north by Milner Pass (US-34/Trail Ridge Road).
The route can be accessed directly at its termini and once mid-route, at Rollins Pass (high-clearance vehicle advised). Otherwise, it must be reached from nearby trailheads on its east and west sides, normally only by foot.
The termini and trailheads are within a 2-hour drive of Colorado’s metropolitan Front Range, many mountain towns, and Denver International Airport (DEN).
The map below is intended for general orientation and logistical planning. Detailed topographic maps of the route are included in the Pfiffner Traverse Guide.
