Known as Colorado’s most dangerous pass. Our company helped build this route in 1959 making another round trip route in addition to Ophir, Last Dollar, and Imogene. We were featured twice in National Geographic and on the first song of CW McCall's best hits album until taken over by "Convoy" which went to number one in the nation. Wild Bill drove this route over 2,000 times and one of our current drivers has done it over 500 times.
Known as the "Flower and Waterfall Trip" Yankee Boy Basin is a trip the begins in town, has mining history, and a general overall jeep tour experience for a half day tour. In addition to the flora and fauna it is known for, almost all wildlife can be viewed during the diffrent seasons. Some of our guides not only specialize in wildlife and photography but have done more tours than others in the area combined! This ride includes the famous spot where one of our guides who took Disney representatives four different times to patter in their rides states "Disneyland has nothing on us-our tour is real"! Touted as a photographer's paradise, we've taken National Geographic, Arizona Highways, and other photography groups sometimes annually to this beautiful basin.
This tour is perfect for families who want to see Ouray, the Jeep Capitol of the World's, favorite sights.
See famous Red Mountains! Once at the top of the pass, the views are fantastic. The drive offers an incredible bird’s eye view of Como Lake. The original route through Corkscrew Gulch was a rough trail built-in 1882-1883 to provide access between Silverton with the towns and mines on Red Mountain. This track is unforgiving in many areas. With jaw-dropping views around every corner, be sure to bring a camera and plenty of juice to keep it alive.
