 Jeep Tour Info Jeep Rentals

The old mining roads of the Telluride region make for the perfect venue for your 4x4 adventure. High alpine terrain, slick rock roads, abandoned mining towns, waterfalls - Sound appealing? If you're an experienced hand at four-wheel-drive adventuring than there is a wealth of terrain to be explored.

The most popular route begins right in Telluride: Imogene Pass and the Tomboy ghost town. Imogene Pass is an unpaved 17.1 mile road connecting the small mountain towns of Telluride, CO (8,750 ft.) and Ouray, CO (7,810 ft.). 

If you have a high clearance vehicle you can take the trek to Ouray, CO over the 13,114 foot pass... but, we recommend not stressing about the drive and taking a Jeep Tour with our friends at Telluride Outside. They give an outstanding history lesson as you climb the pass. 

To begin your journey, drive to the top of North Oak Street to Tomboy Road. Drive for 5 miles along Tomboy Road and you'll enter the Town of Tomboy (2,650 foot elevation gain) - an old mining town from the 1880's that used to host 1,000 year-round residences. A 2.1 miles past the Town of Tomboy you'll reach the saddle of Imogene Pass at 13,114 feet (4,350 foot elevation gain). You can take in the sights and then head back to Telluride or continue down another 10 miles to Ouray, CO. Imogene is the second highest pass in the state of Colorado and is ranked a 4/5 out of 5 in difficulty.

The views are unbelievable and you'll find yourself wondering how people conquer the Imogene Pass Run!

If you have some time, one of the most beautiful drives in Colorado, Last Dollar Road, is an alternate route to get from Telluride to Ridgway. The views of Mount Wilson and Mount Sneffels from Last Dollar Road are absolutely unparalleled. Horses grazing with aspens and the high San Juans in the background... Doesn't get more quintessentially Colorado than that.

Most challenging route in the Telluride region - Black Bear Pass. This route is not for the faint of heart. The one way route begins on Red Mountain Pass between Ouray, CO and Silverton, CO on Highway 550. It summits at almost 13,000 feet and passes Bridal Veil Falls in Telluride on the way down. This route is for experience 4x4 drivers (and passengers!) only.
