Renting a Jeep or doing a 4-wheel drive tour is one of the best ways to see Telluride’s amazing scenery and simultaneously learn about its history. With its location in the rugged San Juan Mountains, Telluride is the perfect setting for a summer Jeeping/4-wheeling adventure.
Rent a Jeep through Colorado 145 (970-519-8004) and do some exploring on your own. Or, there are many well-established companies offering tours over the mountain passes and through the old mining roads. Difficulty and level of adventure ranges from easy to extreme. Jeep rentals are also available for those comfortable exploring on their own. The 4-wheel drive season starts Memorial Day and lasts through October, but snow can fall on the high passes at any time of year. Give Telluride Outside a call (970.728.3895) to book a tour.
