A beautiful Jeep trail leading to the flank of Hurricane Peak at 13,200'. We believe the views from the end of this trail are the best in the San Juans.
Eureka Gulch is a story about the Sunnyside Mine and associated Sunnyside Mill, about a disappearing lake and about a 2015 mine spill by the EPA that contaminated the Animas River for hundreds of miles.
Enjoy an easy road up steep-walled Cunningham Gulch to visit the remains of the Highland Mary Mill, enjoy beautiful waterfalls and view the Old One Hundred Boarding House on the side of Galena Mountain.
Imogene Pass is a great Jeep trail between Telluride and Ouray. Lots of history, scenery and, unfortunately, lots of people. Second highest driveable pass in Colorado.
Prospect Gulch is one of four gulches, very easy and very close to Silverton.
Georgia Gulch is one of four gulches, very easy and very close to Silverton.
Porcupine Gulch is one of four gulches, very easy and very close to Silverton. It is the best of the bunch.
Hancock Gulch is one of four gulches, very easy and very close to Silverton.
The Buffalo Boy was worked during, after and with the Old Hundred Mine and ore was taken down the mountain by tram to the Niegoldstown area mill. The tramhouse at the mouth of the mine is still in fairly good shape, and suspension cables still come out of it and head down the hill.
Richmond Basin is a fairly short in-and-out Jeep trail with a few off-camber spots, a fun shelf road and a somewhat difficult half mile that causes the 3.0 rating. A fun trip.
