We did it on Nov 22. It has some breathtaking views of the mountain ranges. With good tires and AWD it can be done if there is no a lot of snow, we had about 3-4 miles of snow, but the main problem is the...More

if you are not familiar with the area, best not go without 4 wheel drive and don't try in winter. It is very beautiful and you shouldn't miss.

One of the most scenic roads in the area with beautiful views of the mountains, especially in the Fall during autumn colors. The road is well maintained, but there are a couple of places that become impassable when wet.

Not the shortest way to get from Ridgway to Telluride but if you want a 3 hour beautiful drive with some light off roading and photo stops this is it. Four-wheel drive is recommended but not necessary in dry weather. It's best not to do...More

Last Dollar Road was our first off-roading trip on this recent vacation in Colorado. It is rated "Easy" and a great start for non-expert 4x4 riders. You could probably drive this in a non-4x4 vehicle. There are only a couple of smaller challenges but nothing...More

Took Last Dollar Rd as an alternative to some of the more intense jeep trails and couldn't believe how awesome it was! Varied topography, lots of wildlife, cattle, and horses, and some of the best views in CO. While most of the road is an...More

We enjoyed the trail of forests, fields, flowers, and mountains. We recommend this road for scenery.

Need high ground clearance for sure. My 2015 Escape scraped bottom a few times. 4wd absolutely necessary if it's been raining. A few sketchy holes but we made it through, fun! The views were amazing and breath taking! We were going to Telluride, it took...More

This scenic drive between the Ridgway area and Telluride is wonderful regardless of the season. Early summer brings wildflowers galore, fall it is awash with vibrant color, and wildlife like deer, elk and even bear year around. As a photographer many of my most valued...More

During that time of year be sure to check with folks in Ridgway on the current road conditions as you could encounter snow at that time. I would not recommend taking a passenger car over that road. Approaches from each end... More

Yes, you can, however you will need to trailer your ATV to a staging area right outside Last Dollar Ranch, about a mile or so in. The only problem is that once you get to the end of the road at Hwy. 145, going into... More

It could be tricky in spots. If you give it a go - just NEVER stop in a wet, muddy or stream over the road area. If you lose your forward momentum, it's a very long distance for help. The mud is very clay like and is quite... More
