    Independence pass

    This year the ride up Independence Pass will be held on May 16th, before it opens to auto traffic. Does anyone know if you can ride the pass on the 15th? I would like to support the ride and pay to go on 16th, but I can't ride that day.

    Do you know if the road will be open to bikes before it is open to traffic?

    It is always open to bikes...you just ride past the gate....but it won't be open to the top till the snow melts and that likely won't be by 5/16.

    Yeah trail ridge is higher. I think there is some weird technicality about the "pass" on Trail Ridge Road being Milner Pass, which is around 10,200' and not the top of the road, which is around 12,200'
