Winnat's Pass is so cool! What a beautiful landscape - would definitely recommend driving it (up or down) and parking and walking around it. It is such a marvel of nature - the whole area is really.

Wonderful scenery. Highly recommended. We did it in October, and it was still beautiful, with wonderful clouds. Stay in Casteton and highly recommend also going to Treak Cliff Cavern.
