Known more for its skiing rather than it's 4wheeling, Velocity Basin is an easy dirt road that leads you to a gorgeous glacier-fed lake at the north foot of Storm Mountain. Velocity Basin was formerly known as Colorado Basin and is located on the east-facing slope of Silverton Mountain Ski Area. This may be a short easy trail, but the views and scenery will leave you picking up your jaw from the ground. The beauty of this basin is incredible and it's hard to believe it's so close to town.
