Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route runs through a beautiful valley close to Silverton offers great hiking, biking and fishing. Large open campgrounds along South Mineral Creek suitable for motorhomes. Spectacular climb to high mountain lake with beautiful wildflowers. Silverton is a must-see town. Residents here take real pride in their community.

It has a rich mining history with many great stores and restaurants. Visit the museum or take a ride to Durango on the famous “Durango and Silverton Railroad.” Great area to camp and ride ATVs on marked forest roads. Steep and narrow at the top but suitable for any high-clearance stock SUV."
