4-WD Tours

Telluride Outside’s 4WD tours allow you to access the magnificent San Juan Mountains and revisit Telluride’s historic mining legacy. Our tours are conducted in new, highly customized vehicles for safety and comfort. Touring vehicles have an open cab so guests may converse with their guide while traveling. A removable canopy provides protection in all weather conditions without compromising the “open air” experience.

Our guides bring a highly professional and knowledgeable touch to each trip. Their uncanny ability to entertain will keep you engaged throughout your high alpine experience.


Imogene Pass: Imogene Pass is our premier tour, passing through the historic Smuggler and Tomboy mining camps en route to the summit at 13,110 feet above sea level. The half day Imogene/Tomboy trip is our most popular tour in July, August and September.

Half Day Tours

8:00 am – noon
1:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Adults | $95 Children | $85 (12 and younger)


Black Bear Pass: Black Bear is a white-knuckle thriller. Our half day tour crosses Ophir Pass to Highway 550 near Silverton, then returns to Telluride over notorious Black Bear Pass (12,840), dropping into the Telluride valley via the ominous switchbacks visible from downtown. Many customers book Black Bear to verify its reputation as one of America’s most challenging 4WD roads. Locally, it is also known for stunning wildflowers.

Half Day Tours

8:00 am – noon (morning only)
Adults | $120 Children | $100 (12 and younger)


Ophir Pass and the Ghost Town of Alta: A spectacular scenic route with fascinating historical highlights, our Ophir/Alta tour offers a memorable adventure that is less precipitous than Imogene Pass or Black Bear. Wildflowers on Ophir Pass are absolutely eye-popping in July and early August.
