This Jeep Trail In Colorado Was Ranked One Of The Most Dangerous In The World

The infamous Black Bear Pass located in the town of Telluride is one of the most dangerous mountain passes in Colorado. When you start the final descent into Telluride, it turns into a one-way trail, so once you pass that point of no return, it’s do or die time!  In 2004 two people were killed and two children were injured in the second fatal jeeping accident in less than two weeks on the passes above Telluride. I would not attempt this if you are not a seasoned off road driver.

I have traveled from Telluride to Ouray via Imogene Pass. Not as bad as this jeep trail, but still pretty scary. The road up from Telluride clings to the side of a cliff with the scariest bridges I've ever been across. Glad I wasn't driving! Once you get up to the old Tomboy mining town, and up over the pass, the road is much less scary.

Took it in a 79 scout with 33's on it.... A little tight on the switchbacks! Powerwagon definitely has longer wheelbase.

They've taken humvees on it, so I'd think you'd be able to

I'm gonna put a 2.5" lift with 36" tires. The lockers are worthless without the ground clearance
