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!

Now this sounds like a good time.....will have to keep this on the radar........not sure if I'll have enough vaca days remaining by then with all the other trips/states I'm trying to knock out this year. But then again this trip might be worth not getting paid for...

I'm confident it'll be worth it!

Great entertainment! Last year @Venture Overland even brought in a bear! I wonder what they'll do this year?

What does the terrain look like? Planning on hitting up some of those trails over the summer. Unsure of how well built Id need to be. Think Ill need lockers? Currently on 32s
The terrain is amazing. I've done many of the scheduled trails in my stock full size Chevy. I plan to be on this trip in the same truck. There may be a couple of the Moab trails I'll sit out.
