Washington Gulch road starts out smooth but gets progressively rougher as it approaches the junction with the Slate River Rd, which is generally much smoother on its way back to Crested Butte.
Abundant summer wildflowers and impressive fall colors provide plenty of photo ops. There are some fine vistas a short way down from the junction offering views into the lush Slate River valley.
