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.


Trail Ratings Defined

Do not take this trip lightly. The road is rocky, steep and narrow in places and passing can be dangerous. Stock SUVs should have low-range gearing, 4-wheel drive, high clearance and skid plates. Experienced drivers only.
