Overview

Crosses stunning 13,114-ft. pass between Telluride and Ouray.

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.

We ran this trail to the large abandoned mine near the top. After that, an avalanche is blocking the route. You could probably skirt it because some of the trail is exposed and I can see others have done it, we chose not to. The trail is on good shape with some fun rock obstacles to climb but you can also go around them. They will not be clearing any more of this trail, it will have to clear by melting. We run a 2″ lift with 33s and open diffs and had no problems.

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.
