Try Ophir Pass, It's rated as one of the easier trails. I did it off of the Million Dollar highway north of Silverton. It takes you into Telluride. It's a nice easy trail to get your feet wet. Engineer Pass can be challenging with some tough spots. Do a search for Ouray Jeep Trails.

Imogene Pass is great. Start from Telluride side early in the morning. We did that and Engineer Pass and Mineral Creek last year and it was a blast!

About 7 miles north of Silverton on highway 550 you can head west over Ophir Pass and check out Telluride. From Telluride, go over Last Dollar Road to rigeway and back down 550 to Durango. You can access Bolen Pass behind Durango Mountin Resort (ski area) and come out north of Rico on Highway 145. Just north of Durango is Missionary Ridge Road off of County Road 250...18 miles to the top. Another spectacular run is up La Plata Canyon just west of town on County Road 120. PM me and perhaps we can take some runs together.

Me 3 weeks ago on top of Mt Evans in my new (ish) 2011 limited. Note black cousin in background!
Is the small group of mountain goats still hanging out around the building up at the summit?

Re: 2014 Limited @ 14,000 ft | Colorado Rocky Mtns

driving the paved road to MtEvans is a bit different than driving a TRAIL.


99 of 100 WK2 drivers will NEVER drive on more than a gravel road/

You have a problem with people enjoying their Jeep where they choose to drive?

Maybe you want more people to buy an AWD vehicle and Jeep to go bankrupt?

Check the side impact collision ratings of a wrangler or the consumer reports review of the wrangler. GC makes a heck of a lot of sense for a daily ride imo. Wrangler not so much.

Is that a bad thing then? I wasn't trying to suggest driving up Mt Evans was intrepid or anything. It was just a pleasant run and a chance to take some nice photos of my new Jeep.

Re: 2014 Limited @ 14,000 ft | Colorado Rocky Mtns

I rent a 14 GC limited V6 on my honeymoon. I drove it 5days from Denver-Rocky Mountain-Yellowstone-Grand Teton-Salt lake city-Las Vegas. Spent 46 hrs sit time with 2400 miles. Used to drive 85 mph in consecutive few hrs, 50 mph on unpaved road, it impressed me a lot. So I ordered an Overland two weeks after my honeymoon and got it last Friday. Then I noticed the harsh downshift from 3-2 gear especially without throttle/brake which never happened on the rent car. Wish it can relearn my driving skill and get better later on. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
