Looking at a little road from State Bridge to Kremmling. Is it paved? OK for RV? Can't tell from my maps. Thanks so much. Betsy.

I once drove that road while we were shuttling back and forth for a raft trip on the Colorado River. That was a few years ago, but I remember it to be a two-lane paved road in good condition.

Google Street View shows it as gravel but looks well maintained.

I’m pretty sure it is not paved.

Thanks. A CO resident told me it was paved and he had been on it with an
RV. I was confirming that.

I drove it a number of years ago (man, maybe 20 now?) with a 27' Class C without issue. It was gravel then. But, that RV was my hunting rig and those roads were normal for me, so I was fine with it.

Edit - I just looked at Google Maps, Satellite View and zoomed in. Drop the little guy on the road for street view and County Rd 1/Trough Road is still gravel (at least at the image timeframe) on the east end, at least. In Street View, you can "drive" the whole thing on your computer to see what it looks like.

Edit 2 - I just did the above and interesting enough, as you head up the mountain near Gore Valley Overlook, GoogleMapsSatellite it IS paved! How about that? ... and then it's gravel again on the west side ... so, the answer is "No, yes, no" [emoticon]

For almost all of its length, the Trough Road is a graded gravel that they put mag chloide on to keep it somewhat smooth. We pulled over that road a couple of years ago while it was raining. The mag chloride got all over the truck and trailer so we pulled into a car wash in Kremmling and washed everything off real well. In dry weather, it's not a tough road at all and almost as smooth as some of the paved highways I've been on.

The sat view and streetview images are dated. In the one link the Streetview is 2009. Check those if there seems to a difference, and you suspect the county found some money to finish the paving [emoticon].
