San Juan Mountains • Silverton, Colorado
Train Ride With ATV OR 4x4 Suburban Guided Backcountry Tour
With this package you will be riding the bus from Durango at 9:30am. During the bus ride to Silverton you will enjoy cruising over the famous Million Dollar Highway, an American Scenic Byway. Drivers, this is a wonderful drive in itself and you will be able to sit back and enjoy the view.
San Juan Backcountry will pick you up at the Train Station in Historic Silverton, Colorado, with one of their well maintained open-top Suburbans. Your tour will begin from the Train Station and from here you will begin your adventure into the backcountry of the San Juan Mountains.
You will experience what it might have been like in the 1800's when miners and their families traveled. Along the way, you will be viewing waterfalls, ghost towns, wildflowers, mines and just maybe, some wildlife.
We will travel close to approximately 13,000 feet in elevation. We will stop and have lunch along the way, where you can take a hike or just sit and gaze at the beauty of San Juan Mountains.
We will arrive back in Silverton at approximately 2:15pm, just in time for you to do some quick shopping or exploring around Silverton. You will board the Train at 3:15pm and will arrive in Durango at 6:45pm. Your return trip to Durango runs through the picturesque Animas River Canyon.
