San Jaun mountain citys

Ouray, Silverton, Telluride, Ridgeway, Durango, Lake City...

I travel to these towns on my offroading (Jeep) Vacations each year.
A very beautiful area. Words or pictures do not come close to describing the area's beauty.
A grat place to visit.
In fact I'm trying to find work there so I can relocate there.

nitecop,
I live in Parker and have never been out that way.
Could you recomend a good moderately difficult offroad trail for my wife and I to try?
Any suggestions as to where to stay if we head out that way?
Thanks

You should try Black Bear Pass going from Hwy 550 between Ouray and Silverton to Telluride. The switchbacks coming down into Telluride is the most difficult/dangerous part. Even in a CJ7 we had to do a couple of 3 point turns. Then you could either take Ophir Pass (just south of Telluride) back to Hwy 550 just north of Silverton or you could take Imogene pass north out of Telluride back to Ouray.

Check out Bing maps as they now have "Bird's Eye View" of the areas around Telluride. Some views though were shot during the winter so there is snow on the ground, but in some views, especially of Black Bear you can get an idea of the terrain.

I would get the wells book (guide to Colorado backroads &4-wheel drive trails by Charles A. Wells) and look at it you can find them on ebay.
What make and model of vehicle do you have for trail riding? it does make a difference.
Many of the trails out there are snow covered from October to May.
