Locate in the northeastern plains at 4,820 feet, Last Chance is a tiny unincorporated community of only 23 people in 2000. It lies at the crossroads of US-36 and CO-71.
Part of Washington County, this unpopulated served as a convenient rest stop between the two roads. It apparently got its name because it was the only source of gas and supplies for miles in any direction. The town of Woodrow serves as the postal addresses for Last Chance.
In 1993 five tornadoes hit Last Chance, the strongest of which as an F3. In 2012 a flat tire of a passing vehicle sparked a wildfire which burned much between Last Chance and Woodrow.
