Imogene Pass, Colorado

I

Imogene Pass at 13,114 feet, is one of America’s highest drivable roads (2nd highest in Colorado) and one of the most amazing scenic areas you’ll ever experience. 

As we travel past Savage Basin on the Telluride side of the pass we will find the leftover remains of Tomboy Townsite, once one of Colorado’s most prolific mining towns (up to 3,000 people). Farther up the pass we break into high alpine environments with scarcely a plant in site, just the rocks of the mountains tops.  

In contrast, as we travel the opposite side of the pass toward Ouray we are treated to lush meadows carpeted by alpine wildflowers with stunning mountain peaks providing backdrop for your photos.

The best time to travel over Imogene Pass is in August as that is prime time for the wildflowers.  Due to the snowpack which lasts well into summer and begins again early in Fall, this pass is generally only accessible from around early/late June until late September.

Notes:

  • Due to travel times, this destination can only be included into multi-day photography / jeep tours
  • Imogene Pass is often combined with other destinations in the area including Engineer Pass, Yankee Boy Basin and other Ouray/Telluride Jeep trails.  It also works well with some of our Fall Color tour options (keep in mind there are no wildflowers by Autumn).
  • Imogene Pass is a moderate Jeep trail requiring a high clearance 4×4 vehicle.  If you dislike rough roads or are frightened by skinny roads with large drops on the side, you may not wish to participate in this destination.
