Unaweep/Tabegauche Scenic Byway

This scenic route between Grand Junction and Telluride is made up of Highways 141 and 145. The byway is 133 miles in length and follows Unaweep Canyon’s red sandstone walls down a historic path that dates back to Precambrian times and has hosted everything from dinosaurs to miners.

Stop and see a hanging flume from the 1880s and the remains of Driggs Mansion, built for a wealthy New Yorker in the early 1900s, located 161 miles, or approximately 3.25 hours, from Telluride.

Allow at least three hours of driving time to travel the entire route and more time for a more leisurely drive with occasional photo stops.
