ALPINE TREKS: 2020 Tarryall Off-Road Tour Recap

Eight Cayenne’s and two Jeeps met early Saturday morning, August 15 at the Rudy’s parking lot for the Tarryall Off-road Tour (only the last 10 miles were actually off-road). It was a cool morning and not a cloud in the sky at 8 am. After the drivers meeting we headed up Hwy 24 towards Divide and then made the turn towards the Tarryall reservoir down the road. We took a short break at the reservoir’s rest stop, and the Sontags in their Jeeps left the group for some serious off-roading of their own. The eight Cayenne’s continued on to Hwy 285; one Cayenne left the group as we turned off the Boreas Pass exit.

We hit the small town of Como before it turned into a rocky dirt road as we climb towards Boreas Pass. The Cayenne’s got plenty dusty but nothing that they couldn’t handle. We all made it to the top and found parking to look around the historic site. Thirteen of us stayed in the area and had an impromptu picnic lunch. Other than the smokiness from the Colorado wildfires, it was a perfect day with perfect temperature up on the mountain. This tour definitely has the possibility to replace our current planned off-road tour for Treffen in 2022. It was worth noting that the group made every light together and stayed intact the whole trip (other than those prearranged departures). Everyone was impressed and the road between Hwy 24 and 285 was scenic and in good condition. Thank you T.J. Veldheer for setting up a great tour. Click here for photos from the Tarryall Tour.
