Tennessee Jeeper heading to Imogene Pass

Tuesday my wife and I are heading out for a two week road trip in the Jeep. Were headed to Colorado for some trail riding and camping. We are going to run Imogene Pass and maybe hit Cinnamon Pass and Engineer Pass. This is our first time out west trail riding. Is there anything specific that I need to know about trail riding in Colorado? Access permit needed? Permit to camp? What are the trail conditions this time of year. We will be driving a Rubicon with a winch and we'll be going it by ourselves. Anything we need to be cautious about? Water crossing, muddy conditions? Etc.

No permits needed unless you are driving an ATV.

There is a lot of free camping but National Forest Campsites charge a small fee.

Look on traildamage.com for trail information.

Check on wranglerfoum.com in the colorado section. Some guys on that forum just went on a trip down there and they will have up to date info on the area.

I just got back from doing black bear, Imogene and lots of others. There's paid camping and free in the woods. Lots of Watt crossings and all that good stuff. Hope your not afraid of heights

Run Black Bear over to Telluride and the Imogene over to Ouray. One of the best day trips in Colorado, IMO. Go slow on Black Bear and keep your eyes on the road. If you want to take in some scenery stop the vehicle. Black Bear is not hard but there is little room for error.

X1000, the Black Bear/Imogene Pass loop is a must, just ran it last weekend.
