History:
Description:
Saguache County Road 14PP is a continuation of Gunnison County Road 45 south out of Doyleville. It runs along the western edge of the Gunnison National Forest before tieing into US Hwy 114.

The county road is a graded two lane road. It passes private property, but mostly travels across BLM lands. At the southern end of the road you will pass Prosser Rock, an old valcanic core. It is the remnants of an extinct valcano where the lava in the throat of the valcano cooled and became Rhyolite rock. Over time the outside of the valcano eroded away exposing this plug.


As you continue south southwest you will also pass Razor Creek Dome. Shortly you will tie into US Hwy 114.
