6 Off-Road Locations for the Adventurous Driver

These remote locations aren’t for the faint of heart.

Off-the-beaten path locations are Atlas Obscura’s specialty, and for these destinations, we mean that literally. From abandoned train tunnels in Colorado to a cliffside drive in New York, these spots are made for intrepid travelers unafraid to take the unpaved route to amazing experiences. You might think twice before driving a sedan up the Burr Trail switchbacks, but the supremely capable All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk®  was built for this kind of challenge. These six locations are off-road wonders you don’t want to miss.
