Ouray is extremely popular for off-roading adventures. With that in mind, avid Jeep enthusiasts may have heard of the Jeep Jamboree. The jamboree has been a traditional event bringing together Jeep fans since the early 1950s. The first ever jamboree was launched by pioneer Mark A. Smith who went on to navigate the Sierra Nevada Mountains using the classic Rubicon Trail.
The 2018 Jeep Jamboree will be making a stop in none other than Ouray, Colorado! Jamboree participants will navigate through the towering elevations of the San Juan Mountains including the assorted ghost towns and even the impressive Imogene Pass which, at more than 13,100 feet is among the highest driveable passes in all of the United States. The jamboree is rated three to eight, which means it is considered demanding and is not suited to off-roading or Jeep beginners.
This year’s Ouray Jeep Jamboree is kicking off on September 13th and will continue until the 15th. Unfortunately, the trip is sold out but anyone that would like to participate can add their name to a waitlist. Even if you’re a beginner, Ouray has trails that are easy enough for off-roading beginners to navigate.
