Rocks n Rockies

Venture Overland’s Rocks n Rockies 2019 Overland trip will be one for the books! It’ll be 8 days of relaxing and overlanding! Starting the trip in Moab, Utah, we’ll run four trails over two days. After some red rock fun, we’ll set out on the 160 mile Rimrocker Trail for a two day overlanding trek to Montrose, Colorado. Once in the Colorado Rockies, we’ll venture over six of our favorite trails for the remaining four days, including a day at, arguably, our favorite hang out in Ouray, the Ouray Hot Springs!

In addition to the sightseeing along the trails and relaxing at the Ouray Hot Springs, we’ll also visit Silverton and Telluride, ride the Telluride Gondola into Mountain Village. There are many other cool, fun things to do and see as well as cool places to eat and shop! We’ll try to do a little “touristing” while in each town!
