The Experience

This August, New Mexico Black Range will be leading an all-new overland traversal and experience that will traverse Colorado’s iconic high-country. The Rockies Road Trip will zig-zag across Colorado’s backroads over high mountain passes, along rushing rivers, and through colorful mountain towns. Landscape features will include canyons, chaparral, dense forest, and alpine tundra with elevations ranging from 7,000 to 12,900-feet. Road types and conditions will include washboards, two tracks, primitive non-maintained, graded, mountain shelf, dirt byway, and (least of all) pavement. The RRT will provide outstanding views, an incredible range of scenery, backcountry camping, and aggressive elevation contours. For those that join in, the only guarantee is that they will conclude their adventure with new friends, dirty rigs, big smiles, and an accomplishment that will make their fellow overlanders envious.

Drive to Thrive

Due to the vast amount of terrain that must be covered during the RRT, this expedition is geared towards overlanders that “drive to thrive”—meaning the trip will likely feature long drive days, widely varying road types/conditions, and minimal instruction/education sessions. For those individuals seeking an overland experience provides more skills training and educational content, NMBR’s Gila Overland, Gila Legends Expedition, EXP-4WD Training, and Camino del Tesoro may provide better suited options.

Go Boldly with NMBR - Over the past decade, NMBR has written a series of informative overland travel-based articles (NMBR’s Field Preparedness Manual) with topics ranging from field kit assembly, to vehicle maintenance and upkeep, to equipment and gear advice. These articles, paired with extensive checklists and instructions, are provided to registered participants as a solid foundation for what to expect, how to prepare, and what to bring for the adventure. During the RRT pre-trip planning and preparation period, NMBR will be available to provide expert opinions and feedback to registered participants for any questions or concerns related to getting ready and gearing up for the adventure. The self-sufficient aspect of NMBR guided expeditions, overland adventures, and training courses challenges and prepares participants for their future 4WD based endeavors—to go boldly, prepared, and with confidence.
