Whether you own an off-road vehicle or are renting one, trail riding in Ouray is incredible. It is known amongst many off-roaders that this is the place to go, whether seasoned or novice; you can find a trail that will suit your off-road needs. Guaranteed!
Here are some of the hottest suggestions:
Yankee Boy Basin
Known as a trail geared toward novice off-roaders, this sightseeing trail is especially sought out by photographers for its outbreak of beautifully colored wildflowers in the early summer season. Multiple waterfalls, mines, and abandoned cabins can be spotted throughout this 18.6-mile trail. Overall, an Ouray jeep rental with 4X4 and high-clearance will provide an effortless experience.
This trail is considerably more difficult to traverse but the breathtaking display of mountainous views make the steep and loose slopes worth the 13,000-foot elevation pass. The mid-summer months boasts spectacular wildflower displays and with a little experience and knowledge, one can easily accomplish a full day of adrenaline packed adventure at this second highest drivable pass in Colorado.
Black Bear Pass
Filled with breathtaking and thrilling views, this trail is not for the faint of heart due to the extremely narrow trail. During the heart-stopping ride along this trail, you will gain access to spectacular views of Bridal Veil Falls. Well-equipped and short wheelbase vehicles are preferred and a partner vehicle is a must.
