5 Fun Facts about Independence Pass


Are you a native? Are you interested in relocating? Do you just love the area? Regardless of your current position I believe knowing the history of an area is important! Plus I’m a total history nerd so bear with me! Independence pass is directly linked to Twin Lakes and its culture. Here are 5 fun facts about Independence Pass…

  1. Independence Pass was originally called Hunter Pass. Named from the summer hunting that took place in the area. 
  2. The Ute Indian People were the original inhabitants of the Independence Pass area. Ice caves can still be found where it was believed that the Utes stored kills in the winter months. 
  3. The first “real” road over the pass began being built in 1880.
  4. Independence Pass was originally a toll road that charged 25 cents for horses and 50 cents for wagons. 
  5.  Independence Pass lost its profitable use in the late 1880s when railroads reached the Aspen area. The original roads, inns and rest stops slowly became nothing more than a ghost town.
