Ophir Pass (10/05/2021)
East to West. I drive a 2nd gen tacoma with a 2" lift. Really fun, beautiful, and easy trail. Used it to connect from the end of Cinnamon Pass to Imogene.
Cinnamon Pass (10/05/2021)
Lake City to Silverton. I drive a 2nd gen tacoma with a 2" lift. Really fun and beautiful trail! It's rated the same as Imogene and I think its much easier.
Imogene Pass (10/05/2021)
Telluride to Ouray. I drive a 2nd gen tacoma with a 2" lift. Truly awesome trail! Narrow shelf roads with off-camber toward the edge. Mild-mod rock obstacles. There was a good amount of snow on the last few switchbacks up to the summit and down the other side which was a bit hair raising. It's rated the same as Cinnamon pass but I think it's a bit harder because it requires almost constant focus. I do better with technical rock obstacles than narrow off-camber shelf roads though so I suppose its all subjective. I'd say its closer to Engineer pass difficulty than Cinnamon pass.
Engineer Pass (10/03/2021)
Ouray to Lake City. This is my favorite trail so far in this area. Way point 6-7 was the most technical. Harder than I expected based on the rating. This trail is rated the same as Stoney Pass and is much harder in my opinion. I drive a 2nd gen tacoma with a 2" lift. Needed a spotter on 2 sections. So glad I did this trail from Ouray instead of bypassing the beginning. Was challenging but very fun!! The views at OH point are incredible!!
Stony Pass (09/28/2021)
East to West. I drive a 2nd gen tacoma with a 2" lift. Fun trail! Pretty easy for most of it. As stated, way point 15 was the most technical. Much easier and less technical than Engineer pass in my opinion.
Medano Pass (09/27/2021)
North to South. Really fun and straight forward trail! I love the diversity of this trail. A little bit of everything and it's all easy and safe. The trail does have deep ruts so high clearance is needed in my opinion. Great camping spots too!
