Frequently Asked Questions.

Matt Altorfer and his Jeep on the Last Dollar Road.

Do I need experience to drive these trails?

No, you don’t! However, you should be an experienced driver in everyday traffic. If you are able to follow all rules and instructions, you will enjoy the tour greatly. Also, if you have extreme fear of heights you might want to team up with a partner who is not.

Is it dangerous?

As with all activities where vehicles are involved there are certain risks. If you use common sense and follow all instructions you will be able to greatly reduce any remaining risks.

Can my vehicle be damaged?

If you are careless or take unusual risks, yes, you could damage your vehicle, undercarriage or body.

How many passengers can be in a vehicle?

We allow no more than 4 passengers in a 4-door and we suggest 2 passengers in a 2-door vehicle. Of course, all passengers need to have seatbelts in place.

Can I bring my children along?

Yes, you can, as long as they are at least 10 years of age.

What is included in the price? (also see Tour Pricing)

Hotel Accommodations, all Meals, tour guides, use of CB radio and cooler, welcome-present. NOT included are Jeep Rental, gasoline, alcoholic beverages at dinner, souvenirs, personal incidentals and travel to and from tour location.

Will the high altitude affect me?

Most people from the lower altitudes adjust relatively quickly. The first day or two some complain about being more tired or feel a headache. Drinking plenty of water and get a good night’s rest is recommended. Moderation in alcohol consumption is always helpful. If you know that you have some adjustment issues it can be helpful to arrive a day or two early if your schedule allows.

How is the weather going to be?

The month of June can be anything. July and August often see afternoon showers or thunderstorms. September is generally drier with less thunderstorm activities.

What should I bring in the way of personal equipment?

Please visit our What to Bring page.

What happens if I need to use the "facilities"?

Some trails have a port-a-potty along the way. Either way though, we'll make a stop before we clear the top of the tree line. As we encourage you to drink plenty of fluids along the way, just give a call out on the radio and we'll pull over at the first possible discretionary area.
