Trailhead Drops & Guided Hikes

May through Mid-October

Hikes & Trailhead Drops in Silverton & Durango, CO

We offer guided day hikes into some of the most awesome country of the San Juan Mountains. Here you can visit historical mills, mines and many old buildings of the Silverton, Colorado area.

It’s amazing to hike up over a mountain top and see a huge historic building of yesteryear sitting where it has sat for over a hundred years!

We also guide people into Silver Lake, the mining camp with no roads leading to it.

While hiking to the Corkscrew turntable, we actually walk on the old ties of the original railroad bed!

There are other great day hikes, too, including Hope Lake, Highland Mary Lakes, the Corkscrew Turntable, Bear Creek trail, and many others.

Want to add a Lunch? $15 each. Box Lunch includes: Large sandwich, potato chips, candy bar, bottled water, and a souvenir “string backpack”. Sandwich choices are: Ham, roast beef, turkey or vegetarian.

For the full San Juan Backcountry experience, we recommend our total package which allows you to add a round trip train ride and an overnight stay to any of our offerings for just $200! Please call for details.
