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).
