Saddle up and hit trails in the heart of Texas Hill Country. This Jamboree offers some of the most challenging terrain in Texas. Held at the historic Inks Ranch, this trip includes granite domes, rock climbs, sandy draws and several scenic vistas.

Jeep® Jamborees are off-road adventure weekends that bring together the outdoors, down-to-earth people, and their Jeep 4x4s. These off-road treks have a long tradition dating back to 1953 when 4×4 pioneer Mark A. Smith organized the first ever Jeep Jamboree and voyaged across the Sierra Nevada Mountains by way of the old Rubicon Trail. In 1954, Willys Motors — then manufacturer of Jeep vehicles — became involved with the adventure, and Jeep Jamborees have been an off-road tradition ever since.
