Ophir – Imogene

Ophir Imogene Pass Tour – An old favorite!

Trip Details & Logistics

Depart from Ouray, Colorado. Climb through the ruins of the Upper Camp Bird to the renowned 13,000 ft summit of Imogene Pass. Descend into Telluride through the ghost town of the Tomboy Mine for lunch. In the afternoon, explore the Alta Lakes ghost town amidst groves of Aspen and Spruce. Return via Ophir Pass, winding up the narrow and rugged Ophir toll road. This trip can be a good choice for wildlife watching as both deer, sheep, beaver and sometimes moose are spotted on this trail. This is also a wonderful all-day experience for the traveler looking for a thorough introduction to the history, geography and landscape of the area, without committing to the more extreme experience of Black Bear Pass.

For the 2022 season we will offer our big tours on Wed/Fri/Sat/Sun with 8:30 AM departures only.  However, this tour is not as popular as Imogene Pass Tour; therefore, tour dates may not be available in order to accommodate the Imogene Pass Tour.  If your dates are not available please contact us and we will discuss our driver availability to see if we can accommodate this tour.

“We didn’t know anything about Ophir Pass and the areas on the other side of the mountain. Alta Lakes was also a treat… thoroughly enjoyed our trip”
