Wolf Creek Pass Ascent-East Bound

Posted limit goes to 35 mph just before Treasure Falls (it’s necessary), and stays 35 to just past the Scenic Overlook. However the reduced speedis very hard to maintain! There are three curves that need the 35, the one at Treasure Falls, a "hairpin" entering a "switchback" (the next serious corner) and the one at the Scenic Overlook. I got nailed for 45 in the 35 between Treasure Falls and the first hairpin. In CO that’s over $100!

Again this speed limit is lowered due to a hairpin curve above a thousand foot cliff which has claimed a number of lives. I personally have been stopped doing 54 in a 45 and let off with a warning. Tell the officer you are headed to the ski area (in the winter) and be polite. Again officers generally do not cite speeders within ten of the posted limit.
