Have you heard of the Alpine Loop (also known as Alpine Loop Scenic and Historic Byway)? It’s a spectacular trip but there is only a limited period in which it is free of snow. Between the June to September period is arguably the best time to explore the 65-mile stretch as it provides the safest and most scenic drive.
Speaking of drive, the entirety of the Alpine Loop is comprised of terrain intended for vehicles with four wheel drive. With that in mind, it’s best to leave the family car at home and take one of our off-road vehicles such as a Jeep on your Alpine Loop excursion. Its considerable length means there is a trail or experience for everyone to enjoy whether they’re just getting started with off-roading or if they’re seasoned pros looking for a rugged experience that will provide a challenge.
If you’re thinking about taking on the Alpine Loop always remember a couple of things before heading off on your trip. Have a firm understanding of your vehicle and what it is capable of, be aware of existing road conditions, stick to the established roads, and remember that if you encounter another vehicle, the one traveling uphill has the right of way.
