Imogene Pass is the second highest drivable pass in Colorado. The drive is one of the most thrilling in the state. At Savage Basin, you’ll pass through Tomboy Townsite, once one of the most active mining towns in Colorado. A great deal of mining debris is still scattered about. Most are on private property and is dangerous to explore. Unlicensed vehicles are not permitted on lower half of south side and must start trail from Camp Bird Road. Road is open May 16 to Nov. 30 but is usually blocked by snow until early July. Can close in early October.
Due to our findings driving this trail in the summer of 2018, we have changed the rating of this trail to Difficult in our 4th edition book from Moderate in our 3rd edition.
