(within last 6 months)
Governor Basin (07/28/2021)
Trail is open to the end. Trail is in good condition with some small ledges and narrow shelf roads. An experienced 4x4 driver shouldn't have too much trove with this trail. Side note, the trail keeps going after the sign to the left that says road closed.
Yankee Boy Basin (07/27/2021)
Easy trail with epic views of waterfalls and the San Juan Mountains. The flowers this time of year are not to be missed! Make sure you put this trail on your list if your visiting the area
Engineer Pass (07/26/2021)
Started Engineer on the Ouray side via Mineral Creek. Trail has deteriorated some since I was here 5 years ago with a rougher ride than I remembered. As we got to the higher elevation on the mountain, we got word there was a landslide near the pass. We turned around and headed to Lake City via Cinnamon Pass. On the way back to Silverton for the night we took Engineer and the trail was open again. The lower section of Engineer has a few lines that will need to be strategized and a few shelf ledges that will catch your breath. This is mostly an easy trail that anyone with a high clearance 4x4 can have fun on.
Cloverdale Mine (06/26/2021)
This trail is open all the way to the top at the mining camp. We were able to keep a good pace up the mountain in our mostly stock 2001 Jeep Cherokee and made it up in about 2.5 hours. The flowers on the lower half of the trail below the tree line were in full bloom. As described, this trail is rocky becomes more so the farther up trail you go. Almost at the end of the trail is a moderate rock obstacle that you will want a high clearance 4x4 vehicle for. The description of this trail is very accurate and thorough and this is one of my favorite trails. Not too difficult but exciting enough to keep you coming back to visit this beautiful trail in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains time and time again!
