An Off-Road Experience with Serious Thrills

Mar 8, 2019 | News, Ouray Colorado Condos, Ouray Vacation Rentals

When you’re staying at one of the Alpenglow Vacation Rentals, there is a mind-boggling array of different things you can do. You could go sightseeing and explore the rich history of Ouray like the Ouray County Courthouse or one of the nearby ghost towns, you can spend the day shopping and dining at the various places on Main Street, or may wish to just kick back and relax in the hot springs. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a thrill, off-roading can be fun.

Among the various off-road trails in Ouray, Red Mountain Pass is one of them. It has earned a level of fame for being among the most challenging mountain passes aimed solely at those with lots of experience under their belt. Guardrails are practically non-existent and the cliffs are fearsome, which means Red Mountain Pass certainly comes with a level of danger.

While it is currently closed until further notice due to avalanches, Red Mountain Pass is worth the risk for several reasons, one of them being the spectacular views. Over 2,000 vehicles traverse the mountain pass when it is open, but do keep in mind that is meant for those with lots of off-roading experience.
