The road is a popular route for tourists and motorcycles, and sections have been used for semi-professional cycling races such as the Tour of Britain.
Although Snake Pass is still the shortest route between Manchester and Sheffield, the more northerly Woodhead Pass is the primary road link between the two cities.
In 2008, a survey by Caterham Cars rated Snake Pass the best driving road in the UK. The following year, it was listed as one of the best roads for driving in Britain by Auto Trader magazine, who described it as “offering unparalleled views over Manchester”.
