The pass is 2225 feet high. The highest point of the mountain itself is 3985 feet, which
you can get to by turning right onto W. Camino Cielo Rd. and traveling along that winding
road for a good hour of carsick fun. But we're not going to go that way. We're going
over the pass.
Just beyond the top of the pass turn left onto Stagecoach Rd, and follow that road to Cold Spring Tavern. Stagecoach Rd. is the original road the stagecoaches took, and Cold Spring Tavern is a place the stagecoaches stopped at to refresh the horses and weary travelers.
